Colona Wrap - $25

Saturday, July 8th; 1-4p

We fell in love with this pattern from Manos del Uruguay as soon as we saw it. The Colona wrap makes great use of one of our favorite yarns, Serena. This gorgeous alpaca-cotton blend makes a lightweight piece with wonderful drape. Colona can be knit in two sizes, either of which would be a great accessory that you'll use year-round. We will be walking through reading the chart and written instructions in class and working through the first few repeats so that you'll be ready to finish the project at home!
