Shibui Knits Niya designed by Shellie Anderson has a subtle diagonal ribbing at the hem, and impeccable fit through the shoulders ensure this lustrous cropped cardigan is easy to wear and style—a modern classic from cuff to collar. Niya is worked in one piece from the bottom up with two strands of Lunar held together throughout. Shibui Knits Lunar is a delectable blend of extra fine Merino wool and mulberry silk in a lace weight. Lunar has a gorgeous sheen that adds elegance to projects such as shawls and breezy cardigans. The diagonal ribbing stitch is charted only.
