Artis is a stranded colourwork toque, inspired by snow-covered wrought iron fencing, reflecting moonlight under a starry winter sky.
This sport weight yarn creates a delicate stitch pattern, while the stranded construction creates a warm fabric to keep the chill off while you’re out for your moonlight winter strolls. Artis is a quick knit, and is perfect as a special project for yourself, or as a gift for somebody you love.
