Comfortable and soft; made in our alpaca, silk and cashmere – just pure heaven to touch and to wear. Raise Up ...can be dressed up for twilight; just a little something to throw over when the darkness descends and the air becomes chilly or to wear mooching about your home over your PJs.
Uncomplicated and effortless to make – worked in 1 PIECE (a swishy triangle; garter st moving into a lace pattern for the top border edge). Throw over your shoulders; fling on and wear. Fasten with a shawl-pin from out collection. Takes 1 skein of 4ply.
Garments, we think, should have meanings and associations. We need the warmth and grace of lives lived before us, just our shoulders seek solace. This knitted delight will do both.
