Meditate is a soothing, rhythmic knit that’s designed to use every last yard of a single skein of luxury yarn. Slipped stitches form tiny bands of double knitting in the mostly garter stitch design—providing small waypoints that keep the knitting engaging, and create an elegant fabric.

Finished measurements
Single-loop: 11” [28 cm] wide, 24” [61 cm] circumference
Double-loop: 6¾“ [17 cm] wide, x 48” [122 cm] circumference
