“Sarafina” is a knitted cowl that can be worn as a scarf or wrapped twice around your neck for a lovely cowl. This design is knit in the round with a simple lace panel. There are short rows utilized to create an unusual shape (hour glass almost).

The Tea Green version uses the Merino Alpaca yarn and the Slate Blue version uses the Baby Alpaca yarn. ShiBui is truely an amazing company that produces the softest, highest quality and richest colorways that I have had the pleasure of working with.
