Hold on to your hats and get ready to be swept away with the stellar performance of Drama Queen! She’s got attitude and sass, she’s all in, and she’ll give you an adventure to remember.

Large and luscious, Drama Queen is a sensual delight. She’ll add va-va-voom draped over your shoulders, and wound around your neck she’s a chic statement; slinky, soft and warm to boot.

Don’t be fooled by her poised appearance, Drama Queen will have you gasping with delight right from the start.

Begin by knitting two small triangular wedges, join them along their live edges, one at a time, and then work from the centre out to the angled ends. First one side, then the other.

Frothy waves of fluff will entertain you and sumptuous texture created with simple yet clever stitches will make you swoon.

Including written and charted instructions, Drama Queen is perfect for experienced knitters and  newer knitters looking for an adventure.
