This once for free CM pattern is retired and no longer available as the yarn is no longer carried in stock.

We’re endlessly amazed at how simple stockinette stitch can yield such an engaging texture. Add one-row striping, as we did in the Yin & Yang Loop, and we can hardly pull our eyes away. Equally entrancing whether you’re on the ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ side, coil this loop around your neck for a perfectly balanced accessory.

We chose Shibui’s delicious Drift for the Yin & Yang Loop. It’s a plush, worsted-weight blend of extra fine merino and cashmere—strong, super-soft, and super squeezable. It delivers crisp stitch definition to the graphic striping of this loop!

Approx. 48”/122cm around x 11”/28cm deep, after blocking.
