Natsuko Iida’s UraUe is a relaxed-fit vest worked seamlessly from the top down and finished with a stepped hem. It combines half fisherman’s rib and stockinette stitch and is completely reversible. UraUe is knit in certified-organic Bio Shetland (100% organic Shetland wool), a tweedy yarn with an airy construction so finished garments feel almost weightless.
UraUe is available in 8 sizes and is designed to be worn with 5-9” of positive ease. The sizes listed below correspond to the actual measurement of the finished garment, so to achieve the recommended fit, please choose a size that is 5-9" larger than your chest measurement.
- Size 1: 36” chest circumference
- Size 2: 40.5” chest circumference
- Size 3: 45” chest circumference
- Size 4: 48” chest circumference
- Size 5: 52.5” chest circumference

Each kit contains sufficient yarn in the color of your choice to make the indicated size and the pattern for UraUe. We will purchase a copy of UraUe for you via Ravelry, so you will automatically receive both a printed copy and an emailed PDF. If you would also like to have this pattern in your Ravelry library, please note your Ravelry ID (not your password!) in the "Notes" field when you check out!
Please note that this kit does not include needles. You will need a US4 16” circular needle, two US4 24” or longer circular needles and a US5 24-40” circular needle, depending on your chosen size. (or size needed to achieve gauge). We recommend a US5 24” needle for sizes 1-2, a 32” needle for sizes 3-5 and a 40” needle for sizes 6-8. The pattern also requires a cable needle. If you don't already have the appropriate needles at home, you can shop Spun's selection of circular needles here and cable needles here.
