Woodland Sweater Yarn Pack - BrooksQuixotic Fibers
Anna Johanna's book Strands of Joy is full of beautiful stranded colorwork patterns, but if we had to choose a favorite, it is the Woodland sweater.
Woodland is a sweet, oversized cardigan with the cutest little woodland colorwork at the hem. The cardigan is worked seamlessly top-down. It has long sleeves, a boxy shape with no waist shaping and the shoulders are shaped with short rows. The pattern comes with instructions for an optional bust dart. The body of the cardigan is worked in the round and cut open once finished. The pattern can be very easily modified into a pullover by omitting the steek.
We have put together yarn packs for this sweater out of a variety of yarns. Here we offer our own hand-dyed Brooks yarn (420 yards/4 oz per skein). A non-superwash organic merino that is grown and milled in North America. Brooks is super-soft, but because it is not superwash treated, it also has the "sticky" quality that makes it easier to steek.
The pattern includes a wide range of sizes:
|Size||Finished Bust/Waist Measurement (Inches)||Main Color (Yards)||Contrast Color (Yards)|
Each yarn pack include the number of skeins required to make the indicated size range. For each color pair pictured, the lighter color is the main color and the darker one is the contrast color.
The pattern is not included, it is available in the book, which can be purchased separately.
