The owner of Monarch Knitting, my LYS, asked me to design a cowl for her project of the month. We selected Lux Adorna’s luscious 100% Cashmere DK in the color Pepperberry. The color way, paired with the Butterfly Stitch pattern, is a perfect match to the store logo. The yarn is a delight to knit and works up quickly in this cozy cowl. Fluture is knit in the round and can be worn as a single loop, or doubled for those cooler days. Easily customizable and quick to knit, you will surely want to make some for yourself as well as for friends and family.

Fluture is Romanian for butterfly.
