Short Description: Luna Viridis by The Yarniad. Luna Viridis is a deeply textured cowl worked up in a gorgeous viridian green colorway. It begins as a semi-circular shawl with a Stockinette Stitch center and is then joined and worked in the round to create a circular piece that mimics a shawlette wrapped around the neck. Little green crescent moons adorn the cowl, encircling the majority of it, and are separated by simple bands of Garter Stitch. Using just one skein of a pretty sock yarn, this is a fun knit, and a great way to add a pop of color and texture to any outfit.
