Lucio, built on luscious SimpliCria for against the skin softness, features a band of stranded knitting running the length of the shawl. Worked in just two colors of HiKoo SimpliCria, it knits up quickly and the patterned section keeps your fingers and mind interested. The reverse of this wrap features locked floats. It's an ideal technique to use, but not necessary. Traditional stranding techniques will work fine.
Kit includes pdf & printed pattern and selected yarn.
