I'm excited to introduce hand-dyed shawl and sweater sets for projects I have knit and love. Yarn is dyed to order, so you'll receive your yarn pack in about 2-3 weeks. I take extra care with it to randomly distribute speckles and ensure a low-contrast tonal variation in the yarn so that it will make the perfect fabric. You'll still need to alternate skeins, but you should be able to achieve the same rich and subtle fabric color that I have.
This yarn pack is for:
Darkwater, a fingering weight colorwork yoke sweater by Jennifer Steingass
Please note: the pattern is not included. You will need to purchase the pattern separately from the designer here.
Main color: Tesseract
Coordinating color: White Frosted Winter Morning
90% superwash American Targhee and 10% nylon
410 yards | 100g
Choosing a size
The designer recommends choosing a size that 3 to 6 inches larger than your bust. Add the amount of ease you want to your bust measurement and then pick the closest size (or size range) below:
||At gauge, sweater will measure
||No. of skeins in your yarn pack
|Size B, C, D & E
||40.75", 43", 46.25", 49.75"
|Size F & G
||53.75", or 56.75"
||60" to 70"
Modeled view: I have a 35 inch bust and my finished sweater measures 40 inches, so what you see on me is approximately 5 inches of ease. (Honestly, I have a bit of a tummy, so I'm kind-of straight up and down. The extra ease makes the sweater feel not too tight around my midsection and not too baggy.)
: If your bust is larger than ~52," you will likely want to knit a size that's larger than the pattern includes. I am committed to inclusivity; therefore, if you order the size 60" to 70", your order includes 1 complementary hour of grading for an experienced tech editor to grade your pattern to bust measurement + desired ease. (I've already figured out the yarn requirements, so your price is fully inclusive.)
