Shiny + Matte Wrap in Pink Primrose
Opposites attract in this springtime Shiny + Matte Wrap! In a real Felix and Oscar odd couple, we use our luminous Spun Silk to bookend Linen Quill’s rustic blend of Highland wool, alpaca, and linen.
In a very straightforward stockinette stitch (plus a bit of ribbing at each edge), no need here for unnecessary drama, fancy stitches patterns, or complex constructions. Plenty of interest abounds just by bringing together these two yarns, so at odds with each other.
