Ninilchik Swoncho by Boyland Knitworks was inspired by a desire to design a modern, unexpected take on a classic Lopapeysa, the Ninilchik Swoncho is Caitlin Hunter's personal dream come true of style meets cosy comfort…
The shift between seasons can bring some unexpected weather, and layers are an essential part of staying comfortable as the temperature dips and lifts. This swoncho is as comfy as being wrapped in a blanket but is more functional thanks to its clever construction and sleeves.
A cosy piece that will surely be your go-to knit in your wardrobe - you may find yourself reaching for it all year-round! Coming in just 2 sizes that fit a wide range of bodies, you may even have to make a few to compensate for the family members who swipe one from under your nose!
