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.
