CLASSIC : White Light
Tanis Gray's beautiful Parides Tros Butterfly Cowl makes great use of self-striping yarn in a fun mosaic knitting pattern. The cowl uses one skein of our White Light yarn, plus cream-coloured yarn as the contrast colour.
Our Merino Twist yarn pairs well with any fingering weight sock yarn, but we've added an option if you'd like to make it a kit and buy both skeins together. The pattern is sold separately.
For those of you planning other projects, White Light has ten repeats of the striping pattern per skein.
The socks pictured are Smooth Operator Socks by Susan B. Anderson.
This listing is for one skein of yarn, not the final knitted item. This is the classic/sock version of this colourway; click here for the rest of the White Light family.
This listing is for yarn only. We do not sell knitted items.
