the siren

the siren...4 (front), originally uploaded by oishiiknits.

inspired by vintage fishnet stockings and the handmade nets of old fishing boats, the siren is a mercurial wrap knit entirely of luxurious mongolian cashmere.

using varying weights of yarn - some super-light and cobweb-y, others lush and chunky - this versatile wrap is exactly what a siren would covet as soon as she washed up on shore.

the siren can be worn any number of ways - four incarnations are pictured in my flickr (

each piece is one-of-a-kind and created as the ideal yarns become available. custom orders are possible but i cannot guarantee color availability.


cosi...4, originally uploaded by oishiiknits.

this "cosi", (italian for "like this" or "like that") is a classic shape with a modern kick.

crafted entirely of lusciously soft italian and uruguayan kettle-dyed merino wools, this piece is a fantastic wardrobe staple.

and the stretchiness of this knit gives you tons of styling options - it's a great light layer over warm weather togs on a cool evening and is a bright, modern layer to spice up obligatory winter coats.

*each "cosi" is one of a kind, created while i knit. designs can be repeated for custom orders or wholesale customers
