RAKUDA (Love) by Jana Huck
A classic shawl with playful style, tassels and a central band of mohair rectangles make Rakuda (Love) a perfect addition to almost any wardrobe. It’s worked in the traditional way (from the long edge towards the tip), with garter stitch and stockinette coming together in a sophisticated pairing that’s relaxing to knit. ITO’s wool-camel Rakuda yarn forms an oh-so-cosy body, with just a touch of mohair from ITO Sensai.
