Do you shift into vacation mode at the first hint of warm weather? Before you cast away all responsibilities and head out of town, cast on this versatile accessory. Designed with a luxurious DK weight yarn from my friends at Queen City Yarn VACATION MODE will be your new favorite travel companion. Spun from a summery blend of silk and linen, this yarn begs for lazy days and easy knitting. This design is the perfect combination of smooth-sailing knitting with casual styling options. The design is equally pleasing on both sides and can be worn as a head wrap or styled as a cowl or skinny scarf. Choose your favorite color to dress up a summer outfit, adding a bit of elegance to any look.
