Watch the leaves change color in this elegant wrap knit with color-morphing yarn. The “Botanical Spectrum” yarn cakes shift in color from one end of the spectrum to the other—quite literally changing the color of the leaf lace stitch pattern. A contrasting border polishes off the wrap and a matching hat completes the ensemble.
