When light hits prism-like quartz crystals, the colours that are refracted are many and varied. Inspired by the variations of colour found in amethyst, Allira is the first of the Chroma Collection 2016 patterns to be released. With yarn and size options ranging from a large five-colour gradient crescent to a smaller shawl composed of one solid colour with a contrast edging of the same modern geometric lace, there is a version of Allira that will best reflect the light that you want to be seen in.
Allira includes both written and charted instructions for the lace section.
