Gepard Kongming - balloon-sleeved sweater
Kongming is the name of the Chinese sky lanterns that were among the first designs using hot air to make a man-made object fly, making the Kongming-lantern the ancestor of ballooning.
That is the story behind the name of this balloon-sleeved sweater with a simple lace pattern. It is knitted in Puf, a soft blend of cotton and alpaca, and thus a more summery version of Montgolfier, the first of our sweaters with balloon sleeves.

This design is knitted using large needles and an airy yarn. It is therefore especially important that it is washed and put through spin cycle in a laundry wash bag, and dried flat (preferably on a towel).
