Grantchester Meadows
Space Oddity Mulberino Yak
Sweet Lullaby Mulberino Yak

Contrast colour

A gorgeous blend of merino, silk and yak sock weight yarn. Much darker than usual natural base, this yarn absorbs colours beautifully to give a rich and deep result. It is also unbelievably soft.

Unfortunately most of these colours are out of stock but I can dye to order (see below) and will add these colours asap.

Description

DETAILS
A round yoke sweater worked from the top down, this pullover is the perfect blank canvas. Stripes can be knitted with a mini skein set, or using two contrasting colours.  My sample used Mulberino Yak Natural and Autumn Leaves but this jumper would be gorgeous in any of the Mulberino Yak colourways. This sweater includes instructions for a cropped or full length fit and different collar options.

SUGGESTED YARN
For this sweater I used primarily a sport weight wool yarn in colors I loved together! To add interest and texture I also grabbed some lace weight suri alpaca/silk blend yarn that I held double. Below is just the skeins you would need if choosing to use only the sport weight yarn, but the pattern includes a break down of the yarn for both sweaters including the suri alpaca. My hope is that you will feel excited to dig into your stash or try out some new yarns and play with single or double strands to achieve the desired gauge!
