HEARTS AND FLOWERS JUMPER KIT

This is so much more than a Pattern for a wonderful jumper. The price includes a Tutorial, 18 pages long, where Meg Foster takes you through all the individual steps you'll encounter in making the jumper.   What looks incredibly difficult is made so easy by her exceptionally clear instructions.   

 Both The Pattern and Tutorial will be included within your Kit package. 

SIZE:   This is a one size garment, eminently suitable for all sizes 10 - 18. 

MEASUREMENTS:  WIDTH 73 cms - (29 inches)   Length ( to centre back ) 52 cms - 21 inches. This is knitted as a "tube" - so measurements can easily be lengthened and width increased or decreased as required.

YARN REQUIRED:   2 X 140 or 150 gram BALLS each of 2 colours of KAUNI EFFEKT YARN.   The designer, Meg Foster, has the following to say about colour choices: recommends the colour EQ as the base colour used with the following:

I recommend the colour EQ as the base colour together with the following choices for the secondary colour:                                                                                                                                                        The model in the photo is EQ as base colour with with EX.  

Also recommended                                                                                                                                                EQ WITH EA which will give a similar effect to EX 

EQ WITH EKS which is soft greens, purple and lilac
EQ WITH EY which is hot pinks
EQ WITH EU hot hot oranges and red
EQ WITH EFL turquoise and purple

For those really adventurous how about EF,  ES,  EPL AND EJ as they are just a lovely mix of blues and greens and although the colours are similar they could be mixed to give subtle fair isle patterning and blending.

Other suggested choices which do not use EQ as the base colour are:

EA as base colour with EZ, EJ or EL

EK as base colour with EP or EV - will give an autumnal effect. 

( Please note - that you will have yarn left over after completing this project - but Kauni Yarn is so versatile your left-overs can easily be put to good use).

NEEDLES:   4mm X 80 cm Circular  ( US size 6 ) to provide Tension of 20sts X 29 rows to 10cm ( 4 inches).

Please note that this Pattern and Tutorial is only available with a simultaneous purchase of the Required Kauni Yarns.

RAPLA RIPPLE SWEATER

A beautiful feather and fan sweater by Anna Verschik for SKD Yarns. This elegant design is seamless and top-down with set-in sleeves. You can try it on as you go to ensure the perfect fit (in fact, this is highly recommended!!!).

This pattern is only available to purchase with the required amount of main colour Kauni Yarn.

Yarn: Kauni 8/2 (100 g/400 m), 100 % wool.

 

Needles: 3.5 mm (I recommend several pairs of circular needles in order to be able to try the garment on as you go; you can use either DPNs or short circular needles for sleeves).

 

Gauge (slightly stretched in the width): 13 sts x 8 rows in the pattern (Chart 1a, size S, L) = 8 cm   x 2.5 cm; 15 sts x 8 rows in the pattern (Chart 1b, size M, XL) = 9 cm x 2.5 cm.

 

Please note that this gauge is only achievable using the same or similar wool yarn as for the sample. Kauni is a yarn with loose twist and knits up differently than for example tightly spun merino yarns.

 

The sweater has some negative ease
