Item details

Beautifully soft and squishy, this fingering-weight yarn is an 80% merino, 20% nylon blend, this base is well suited to children's wear.

This special skein is craftily dyed to create a colourfully striped yoke when used to knit a top-down baby sweater. All you need to do is cast on and start knitting from the striped end of the skein, and the yarn does the rest. **Note: this listing is for the skein of yarn, the sweater knitted is illustrative of what you will be able to make**

Our 100 gram skeins are enough for a 0-6 month sized baby sweater or cardigan. The sample was knit using the free pattern Flax Light by tincanknits (https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flax-light). The sample gauge is 40 rows x 28 sts in 1x1 rib on 2.75mm needles = 10 cm squared. The main body gauge was 32 rows x 26 sts on 3.75mm needles = 10 cm squared. If you wish to knit a gauge swatch, simply work from the non-striped end of the skein. The sample weighs 61 grams.

Happy Birthday: dyed in honour of Penny’s new baby daughter, this cheerful yarn runs through five stripes: grass green, mineral green, bright aqua blue, magenta and bright purple. When knit into a 0-6 month sized Flax Light, each stripe is roughly 2.5cm deep (the first on smaller needles in 1x1 rib, and the rest on larger needles in sticking stitch). The remainder of the skein is speckled with the stripe colours, and washed with pale pink, blue and violet.
