desafinado / Veronik Avery

Simple but effective colorwork in merino/mohair yields an eye-catching result in this hat and mitts set by Véronik Avery. The yarn's soft halo gives the pieces an almost glowing appearance. The perfect project for experimenting with Piper's ultra-sophisticated palette—both accessories together require just 1 skein of each color.
