Connie Chang Chinchio uses clusters of cocoon stitch to create richly textured panes of fabric for the Silk Cocoon Cardigan. Forced to curve with the alternating motifs, twisted rib lines form deep pockets and open lozenges reminiscent of a just-opened bellflower. A silky, slinky alpaca blend gives just the right drape for a fitted wrap sweater.
