Marino Wrap - Aroha Knits
In typical Dreamer Fibre Muse fashion, the yarn served as a strong influence for this design. The soft and quiet blues and whites gave me the image of a tranquil lake on a still winter's day, after a light snowfall, as sunlight beams danced across the surface. Marino was created to reflect that stillness, and breathtaking beauty, with simple eyelet stitches falling down upon the softly waving ripples of the sea foam stitch. The hints of sparkle in the yarn add in an elegant and eye-catching charm that catches the little bits of sunlight.
