Designed for a special skein of DK weight yarn, DRAWN TOGETHER combines many of my favorite things about knit accessories. This sporty yet elegant design has reversible styling, clean details, subtle shaping, and intuitive knitting with the added fun of a pop accent color. This gender-inclusive design looks great in tonal or lightly speckled colors; the drawstring is a knitted icord using sock yarn that can be changed out for a different color pop! It can be worn with the drawstring on top or tucked underneath. I’ve been wearing mine nonstop since I finished it—it’s a great grab-and-go accessory you’ll love to make and use, too.
