Giotto is a fabulous ribbon yarn that’s hand dyed by Colinette in Wales. It’s a light, shimmering blend of cotton, rayon, and nylon that knits up quickly on size #11 needles.
Giotto would make a fantastic top or even a little jacket, but for some easy summer knitting, we came up with a scarf we’ve named Gloria. It’s the perfect accessory to dress up a summer outfit!
