Synchronous Firefly was designed to show off beautifully dyed worsted weight yarn. It features an undulating wave pattern with large sections of stockinette stitch punctuated by graceful lines of yarn overs. The cowl is knit in the round and works up quickly. The mitts feature the wave pattern on the cuff and the back of the hand.
