Inspiration for this design came from Game of Thrones, Season 8, the sea green gown and Dany’s white fur coat with red trim. We loved all the costumes from GoT but they outdid themselves with these two pieces.

Can be worked as sized above or long, to cross over chest like the dress. If you’d like to make a sort of bandoleer, you’ll need 2 skeins of yarn and double the beads, 2 kits. Worked sideways you can make a cowl or a fauxmobius (just twist before stitching together at the end).
