The Yuki Jacket is a very modern cardigan with a pixelated color change at bottom of the sleeves and hem.  Gorgeous ribbing allows the jacket to skim the figure, and the raglan sleeves are built into the pattern with a wide stitch pattern to set off the change in plane.  This top-down, stranded colorwork pattern is simply irresistible!  Introduced in knit.wear Fall/Winter 2016.

A Note from Yarn Loop- This is a fairly advanced pattern requiring buttonhole bands, leaning increases (RLI, LLI), and cable method cast-on's.  You must count any row that is notated to make sure that you haven't added too many stitches in the yoke.  While the pattern calls for Fingering weight held double in 2 colors (some stitches are blended with 1 strand of each color), this pattern may be worked with worsted weight for the body of the sweater with 3 shades for the colorwork as well.  We have provided both options for you here!  We r ecommend washing all skeins prior to winding yarn in balls.  Since the color changes are so noticeable, please wash each color separately before beginning your project.  Please see Yarn Loop's Instagram feed for our FO! 

Kit includes pdf & printed pattern, 3 buttons and selected yarn.  Please add your button selection to "Notes" at checkout, or we can choose the buttons for you, too.
