Dusking is a top-down, circular yoke pullover that uses different numbers of strands of Silk Mohair to create a fabric that slowly becomes sheerer as it nears the bottom.
It begins with 4 strands of yarn held together and, as the pattern progresses, one strand of yarn is removed until only one strand remains to create a gradient effect of sheerness.
