This is an alternative yarn pack for Caitlin Hunter's new colorwork sweater pattern: Stagecoach.  Like the original yarn used for the sweater, Brown Sheep Prairie Spun DK is a non-superwash lofty DK weight yarn that is grown and milled in the US.

Each kit includes 6-10 skeins (enough to make the selected size) of Brown Sheep Prairie Spun DK in the colors pictured and an optional pattern.  Needles are not included.

The pattern can be purchased directly from the designer on ravelry here.  If you would like for us to purchase and print a copy of the pattern for you, you can select the pattern option.  If you provide your ravelry ID at checkout, we can also have the pattern added to your ravelry pattern library.

Stagecoach is a circular yoke sweater knit top-down using 4 colors. This design is relaxed and a fun way to play with colors! Stagecoach is designed to have a comfortable, oversized fit that is slightly cropped with bracelet length sleeves. Body and sleeve length are easily adjustable!
