Love Note Kit – Speckled Silk Options

From: £87.00

I love this pattern so much I’ve made it 3 times, and am currently knitting a 4th. This version is with Mulberino 4ply and a Cloud Lace yarn. The result will be a speckled jumper with a halo from the cloud lace. Kit comes with a printed pattern and a unique Ravelry download code.

Mulberino 4ply

The colour you choose will be the dominant colour of your jumper.

Description

I am so excited to be able to offer kits for this hugely popular pattern, I have made 3 of these (see images) and am currently working on a 4th, with each one being so different. I really love this pattern. As a guide, I used 2 skeins of each yarn to make size M, but please check yarn requirements carefully.

This product combines Mulberino 4ply and Cloud Lace, but it is also available in Mulberino Tonals and Cloud Lace, or Platinum Sock and Cloud Lace.

This sweet little sweater knits up quickly from the top down. The combination of mohair lace and 4-ply merino creates a fabric that is floaty, soft and sensual. With a high-low hemline and two length options, what’s not to love?

Note: the lace pattern is both charted and written

Yarn
We recommend using a blend of fingering yarn + mohair lace weight, but if you substitute we suggest using a DK weight yarn.

Sock or fingering weight yarn held with lace weight mohair yarn – yardage given is for COMBINED yarn; so if your size calls for 600 yds, it requires 600 yds of the sock weight yarn, plus 600 yds of lace weight mohair yarn.
