Classic Silk
What a great hand! This warm- weather silk/cotton combination has a great nubby look with a little sheen and a great natural silk feel. Classic Silk comes in a wonderful variety of colors that look great together and alone.

Worked in pieces and seamed, this combination of a cardigan, a pullover and and a shrug, is easy to knit and will complete the look of almost any out t. The raglan sleeves are worked in Garter stitch and mirror the center front garter stitch panel.
