The Weekender Light Sweater Kit
Ravelry dynamo designer Andrea Mowry's sweater patterns have been spectacularly successful, and The Weekender has been a runaway hit. And now she has created a fingering weight version, which has been long awaited.
To celebrate this sweater design, we've put together yarn packs using our Speckled Handpaints and our Kettle-dyed Semi-solids for this cleverly sophisticated pullover.
"The Weekender, originally designed for worsted weight yarn and released a few years ago, is my most popular pattern to date and it may not surprise you that a lighter weight version has been the most frequent request in my inbox! While these 2 patterns are very similar, The Weekender Light has been adjusted for its very different gauge and with a larger range of size options! The Weekender Light is available in 10 sizes, is knit up in fingering weight yarn and has a few adjustments that I hope will result in another favorite sweater for your handknit wardrobe!" --From the designer
Please note: All dyed-to-order yarns take 6-8 weeks to deliver.
