Electra by Truly Myrtle
has oodles of style. She’s zingy, super fun and just enough wild to make you feel amazing. Wear her draped around your shoulders and hanging long for extra pizazz, or snuggle her up for a pop of colour at your neck.
Knitted from end to end, Electra is a long, slim, arrow-shaped wrap, with a funky tail at one end and a lace point at the other. You’ll begin at the tail with gutsy lace, move to slipped stitches that knit into a delicious honeycomb, and then relax into an easy rhythm of lace and honeycomb and back again.
Electra is the perfect chance to try your hand at combining colours. Try mixing a dark, light and bright to create a real statement or create calm elegance with three tonal shades. The options are endless and exciting!
Perfect for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners.
