I had the opportunity to work with the incredible Hobium yarns to create the Dianna Shrug for you all.
This yarn is pure perfection! Why do I say this? Because there is a hint of cashmere in this yarn and that little hint makes this some of the softest, silkiest yarn I’ve ever played with. I’m being 100% honest when I say, you will NOT be disappointed when you get your hands on it!
When I was designing this piece I knew I wanted something light and delicate. I mean, cashmere calls for feminine delicacy right?
I think so!
Don’t be afraid to tackle this project! While it is a lacy knitting stitch, it is rather easy!
