Knit up a Florentine Kit shawl or tunic and cherish it for a lifetime. The kit is packed with Artyarns' most luxurious hand-dyed Merino Cloud and Beaded Silk & Sequins Light in coordinating colors. One kit is all you need to make either a generous shawl or a tunic (2 versions), or add more yarn for a statement jacket. Patterns for all 4 are included with the kit.
Stitches used and explained in the pattern instructions: K2tog (knit two together); SSK (slip, slip, knit); YO (yarn over). (Jacket stitches include Rib (1×1 rib); PM (place marker); SM (slip marker).)
