Virga is worked in two pieces, from each cuff toward the center. The cuffs are knit with two strands of Lunar, and the remainder of the jacket is knit with one strand of Lunar and one strand of Tweed Silk Cloud held together. Sleeves are knit in the round, then split to form the body. The two pieces are joined at the center back with a three-needle bind-off, and the front edges are continued on the remianing stitches.

Pattern free with the purchase of yarn requirements (5 skeins of Tweed Silk Cloud and 3 skeins of Lunar). We will adjust the price before we process your order.
