Worked from side to side in the simplest of rib stitches, stitches are increased along one edge to the center point and then decreased along the same edge. The fringe is formed by knitting the first five stitches in stockinette stitch, then dropping and unravelling stitches. The loop from each dropped stitch is knotted, cut, then knotted again for a simple yet decorative edge.
85% extrafine merino, 15% baby camel
Kumara is a blend of extrafine merino and baby camel hair. Merino is a warm and buoyant fiber that takes dyes beautifully; camel is a super soft fiber that, because of its short staple length, adds a lovely halo.
The merino component is dyed before it is spun with the undyed camel hair. The blend of dyed and undyed fibers makes soft, muted colors. Kumara’s six twisted plies yield great stitch definition. Available in 18 colors.
