Peony is a glorious love letter to dramatic-yet-wearable shapes. Its cropped length is balanced out by the deep V-neck and balloon sleeves, while the lines of twisted stitches travelling down the body add texture. On the sleeves, they transform into peony buds hiding delicate petals.
The pattern starts with the sleeves, worked without shaping to create volume, from the cuff up and in the round. The yoke fronts and back are worked top-down and in pieces. It is shaped by raglan and circular increases, with various twisted ribbing patterns. After joining the sleeves and yoke, the body is then knitted flat. The button band is picked up afterward and the yoke is finished with a Three-Needle Bind-Off, which can be done before knitting the body to check the length.

It's a delight to knit with - a perfect yarn for beginners as well as super advanced knitters - and comes in a range of gorgeous colors.
wonderful texture and rich color
I’m so happy with the feel and workability of this yarn. So far it’s knitting up perfectly for a mid to heavier weight pullover.
I have not yet used this yarn, but I can make a few small comments here. It's very affordable and even though I ordered it prior to the price increase, I would order it again at its slightly higher price. I think it's gorgeous, I love the shade of grey that I ordered and I can see that this yarn and I will be spending many delightful knitting hours together. And frankly, I love that it's wound into a ball, I can just pick it up and get started.
Using this yarn for a blanket. It's perfect for it as it's still quite affordable and comes in an amazing colour palette. I needed 4 matching blue tones. Found them... ;)
