Complimentary with yarn purchase - see below

This pattern is complimentary with the purchase of 4 skeins of Shibui Maai for this project.

The precise rhythm of a contrasting motif gives depth and enhances this weightless cowl. Hues converge in the middle for a unique take on symmetry and is completed with a neat I-cord trim.
