We offer our Dimond Laine Birdie yarn in well over a hundred glorious hand-dyed colors. This alpaca and silk blend is a firm favorite for all kinds of projects -- held double, knit by itself, or stranded along with another yarn. For this project, we invite you to pick three colors and enjoy the color play of simple regimental stripes knit into this hybrid triangular shawl and cowl. It’s an easily styled piece that you’ll knit again and again!
