Prepare to be captivated…still and enchanting; a haunting beauty appears amid the deep shadows, bringing true radiance and charm. Luxurious fabrics of creamy coloured mohairs, satins and silks contrast with dark brocades and beaded opulence to complete the vision.
Colour is the inspiration for this edition: two or more different coloured yarns cleverly combined to produce a multitude of patterns, each presented as a clear, easy-to-follow chart and a knitted stitch sample.
