Named for one of Lola’s favorite songs, Volare Collar will literally fly off your needles…. Lola looked at many of Laura’s necklace designs and blended them together into something elegant and new!
Volare incorporates prestrung beads that are placed in between stitches with garter stitch and short rows and is knit in Periwinkle Sheep Silky Singles in a color made especially for the Lola’s Choice January kit!
