Shibui Maai has a lofty construction that knits like a dream. Its sport weight allows your garments to be both lightweight and warm, and the color palette is both contemporary and classic.
Martha knit the stunning Boulevard cape by Shellie Anderson with 8 skeins of Maai and needles 4, 5 and 7. Because Maai is comparable to two strands of lighter yarns held double, there's no need to double the yarn for this version. The pattern is available for download on ravelry.
