Andrea Mowry’s Stripes! knitting pattern is a great sweater knit, especially when the stripes knit themselves. We’ve used knitted panels of our luxurious 2ply Lace yarn and dyed them in stripes to create the “colour” thread. This is knit held double with various colours in our Kidsilk yarn, and we’ve matched up those colours to the stripes. There is a generous amount of yarn – a long sleeved Size 5 required approximately half the yarn quantity. So if you’re making a smaller size you’ll have leftovers to play with for beanies and neckwarmers. And for a larger size you won’t need to worry about running out of yarn.
Each Knit Kit includes:
- 2 x 110g balls of Cowgirlblues 2ply Mohair Wool (20% kid mohair, 80% merino wool, approximately 1800m)
- 8 x 25g balls of solid colour Kidsilk yarn and 1 x 20g mini ball (approximately 1800m)
