Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats Launch Party

20th May 2013 - 1:30pm to 5pm

This is one super, special, smashing afternoon! Swedish born Åsa Tricosa, passionate knitter, designer and sour dough starter owner, has chosen Purlescence to launch her first book, Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 Elegantly Seamless Knits

The Ziggurat technique has been honed and refined by Åsa since 2012. It is a true top down, all-in-one-everything-built-in-as-you go

Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits is a sumptuous book, containing patterns for tunics, pullovers and cardigans, in everything from lace weight to aran weight. Detailed photo tutorials are also supplied, to guide you through the basics of Ziggurating.


The Launch party is an open invitation to all knitters to see samples of the designs, meet and chat with Åsa and get your copy of the book.

There will be the usual cakes, tea, yarn, needles and more yarn, that you have come to expect from a Purlescence event. You will also be able to join us in a glass of Prosecco to toast the launch of this long awaited book.

Make a day of it!

In the morning, Åsa will be teaching an exclusive book launch workshop. For more details of this special event click here
