Veronika Popover

Posted on 04.09.2021

By Anna Nozaki

The Veronika is another Cocoknits pattern we love! It's an excellent spring/summer knit - especially when made with a paper based yarn. Or give it a bit more warmth by combining silk and mohair. Veronika is light and swingy, not at all fitted yet with snug cuffs that make it easier to wear than a poncho. This knit is easy to throw-on over almost any outfit, so you’ll find yourself reaching for your Veronika again and again. The front and back curves are created using short rows, using the YO method of short row shaping. After the curves, everything is joined, and the pattern is seamless and circular all the way up.
