Kay’s desire for the Neapolitan was to reflect the fun of eating ice-cream with a design that allows the colours of your yarn to be the star of the show. This is a design that, dependant on your yarn choices, will keep you warm in the winter or be light and airy in the summer.

Here at ‘The Bakery Bears’, we just love three colour shawls and the Neapolitan is of course one of those. We think you will find planning out your colour combinations before you cast on will be as fun as the knitting itself!
