Lotus Sweater (preorder)
I have teamed up with Anne of Wooly Wonka Designs for the brand new Lotus Sweater. This listing is a PREORDER for a sized kit to make one sweater. You can choose the color set and size. I have also introduced 1/2 skeins as part of this kit, as to eliminate the need for buying full skeins for only little sections of yarn needed. This listing will ship in approximately 4 weeks from the date of purchase.
The following is from the Ravelry description for the sweater (found here):
This yoke-patterned sweater is knit from the top (neck) down to the bottom hem. It features a 3-color lotus-blossom-inspired colorwork pattern around the yoke and the sleeve cuffs. After casting on the neck and working the yoke and increases to shape the top of the sweater, the sleeve stitches are placed on hold while the body of the sweater is completed. The sleeve stitches are then worked from the top down. The hems are finished with simple ribbing.
Colorway 1: MC: Tuva (dark green), CC1 Velvet Magenta (dark pink), CC2 Sweet Pea (light pink), CC3 Wintermint (pale green).
Colorway 2: MC: Wintermint (pale green), CC1 Eggplant (purple), CC2 Steampunk (dusty purple), CC3 Tuva (dark green).
You will need the following quantities of fingering-weight yarn to knit the sweater as written:
Main color (MC): 3 (3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5) skeins.
CC1: ½ (½, ½, ½, ½, 1, 1, 1) skeins.
CC2: ½ (½, ½, ½, 1, 1, 1, 1) skeins.
CC3: ½ skein for all sizes.
You can also use only one color for the contrast motifs for a slightly different look. You will need a single skein of contrast color for all sizes if choosing this option.
Suburban Stitcher PURE SOCK yarn is made up of:
100% superwash merino
438 yds/100 grams per full skein
218 yds/50 grams per half skein
Hand dyed yarn can very from skein to skein, even within the same dyelot. Please take care to purchase enough yarn to complete your project.
This yarn does contain superwash merino, however, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. Please use cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. I use colorfast acid dyes for dying my yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. However even with all of this, there is a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This is particularly true for highly saturated colors and speckled skeins. Because of this, I do recommend that you wash your items separately, especially for the first couple of washes.
The pictures in this listing are true to color for my eyes on my computer. Please know that there might be slight variations in color from screen to screen.
