Do you sometimes feel: that a colorway is so absolutely mesmerizing that it has to come home with you and join your stash? A subtle and layered color coming right out of a dream. And maybe even reminding you of places you visited. I felt this with the yarn I used for the Brushed Copper cowl. I’m sure you can relate; it’s so easy to fall in love with a skein! ;-)
With its gentle metallic shine, the Brushed Copper cowl lets you dive into the fascinating world of knitted lace: the lace builds up steadily with patterning on all rounds and forms subtle chevrons, like birds in flight. The result is an elegant lace cowl that lets you dip your toe into knitted lace the easy way. So get your needles and join us for some lacy adventures!
