When you’ve finished all those projects for others, it’s time to make something special just for you! And Red Heart An Italian Story Luce is the perfect yarn for that sort of project. A touch of mohair and sequins – yes, please!
The Italian Elegance Cowl is surprisingly light and soft, perfect to wear out in 3 seasons, and inside all year long. The open stitch pattern is simple and stress-free, and you can finish your own cowl in just a couple of hours, with just one ball of yarn – treat yourself!
