Soft, mysterious and ever-changing—just like the skies on a January morning, five gradient colorways of Chickadee play their beautiful game. A few rows of bobble stitches add visual interest and keep the knitting entertaining, while the generous shape of the finished piece makes it easy to style and wear.
