“As pretty as they are practical. And the perfect gift.”
This one-skein pattern, designed for our 2008 LYS Tour, became a fast favorite. Wear them when knitting outdoors on a chilly day. Or layer them over your fine leather gloves when the temperature drops. Live in a temperate zone? Choose a cooler yarn and they’re all about style.
