Orixa is a graceful statement piece designed to add warmth on those chilly spring and summer evenings. Knit it in a bright jewel tone and it’s the perfect complement to jeans and a cute tank; in an elegant neutral it’s alluring with eveningwear. You can wear it as a tubular scarf as well. Choose a luxury yarn like Hazel Knits Divine (Merino/Cashmere/Silk; shown) for beautiful drape.
Scalloped lace edges the cuffs, and mock-cable lace elegantly accents the neckline. Easily-memorized stitch patterns add interest to the knitting process and look deceptively complicated when finished. With seams for added stability. Lace patterns given in charted and written instructions.
