Knitscene Winter 2016 has hit the right note with this collection influenced by baking.  Ribbing around the collar, hem and sleeves is reminiscent of icing laid in perfectly spaced lines.  The bulky yarn pushes this project forward at a quick pace so that you can wear your sweater soon!  No seaming is necessary with a top down, raglan sleeve sweater that is worked in the round.  If you are a novice to colorwork, this is a relatively easy project due to the single color and evenly spaced stripes.

Both Nevado by Cascade Yarns and Techno by Blue Sky Fibers use modern technology to blow the fibers into a casing that is easy to knit up and does not split.  This creates a very lightweight but warm garment that is rather fluffy and somewhat hazy.  Both yarns are natural colors only.

Kit includes Knitscene Winter 2016 with pattern inside (while available) or pattern only and selected yarn
