Filijokus has stripes in at least two directions, a generous neckline, some waist and bust shaping, and even a little coin pocket. As on all Ziggurat garments, everything is knitted in one go, with only the collar and pocket lining worked last. There is no seaming, and only a few ends to weave in when you're done. The set-in sleeves are knitted in the round from cap to cuff. The collar and cuffs feature horizontal stripes and are knitted sideways.
The recommended yarn, Semilla DK, produces a supple, slightly lighter than normal DK-weight fabric for an in-between seasons sweater or for cool summer evenings.
