Knitting and our lovely Vireo yarn are the ingredients in Elixir – a lively spring and summer top with touches of eyelets and fanciful fringe throughout. Primarily worked in soothing Stockinette stitch, the upper body is adorned with lace. Then, we decorated the hem and armholes with mini fringe. We chose a divine shade of black for a sleek, chic appearance, but with Vireo you can choose colors inspired by the elements, or whatever your heart desires!
