About the Design:
This design began as a single-sized neck warmer, worked in a hand-dyed cashmere heavy worsted weight yarn. I’ve expanded the sizing, and introduced it also as a shoulderette.

Whether buttoned or a pullover, it will chase autumn’s cool nights, as an option to a shawl, then come winter, wear it over a thick sweater or jacket, for extra warmth and panache.

This shoulderette uses under 1 hank of Cascade Yarns Eco (used double), for the 2 smaller sizes, and the neck warmer needs approximately 60 grams. One hank of Eco is enough for several holiday gifts!
