Fun accessories complete an outfit and make a statement—a juicy colorway makes them all the more modern and memorable. This head-hugging band in four sizes (XS/S/M/L) takes advantage of the combined assets in a luxury yarn blend—fine, bouncy wool provides body, warmth, and shape, exotics add a luxurious bloom, and silk contributes lovely drape and sheen, with next-to-the-skin softness. An addictive, easy to work pattern makes this a quick traveling project and a best bet for last minute gifting.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
