Sold as part of the Point/Counterpoint, Volume 2, collection. Two designers + two yarns = inspiration through collaboration. Each designer independently created an accessory, then sent only a photo of the finished object to the other. In response, the designers used the same yarn to create a new accessory inspired by the first, thus making a set. The only limit was their creativity!

Those in-between Spring and Fall days can cause quite the conundrum for knitters – how to add just a little bit of stylish knitwear without too much bulk? Enter the neckwarmer, a fitted accessory that will take the chill off your neck without adding bulk under your jacket. Lean into the Wind adds a touch of style and provides the opportunity to show off some spectacular buttons, which means putting it on won’t mess up your hair. To add a final twist of interest, it’s worn wrong-side out! Knit to go with the Any Way the Wind Blows hat by Prairie Girl Designs.
