The name for this piece came from the gorgeous color combination of the yarns. The deep blue/teal of the main color mixes oh so wonderfully with the varied shades of the alpaca.

This shrug-style cardigan is so comfy and cozy but still so chic (three of the best C’s out there). Knit in a wool/acrylic blend, the end result so soft but still very warm. The larger needles allow for phenomenal drape and the yarn recommended definitely facilitates this characteristic.

The pattern is easily customizable, make it shorter for a bolero, or longer for that “walking around in your favorite blanket” feel (come on, I can’t be the only one).
