This sweater is inspired by dry fields swaying in the winter wind. Designed with high contrast colorwork in the striking wheat ear stitch, classic lines, and positive ease, it’s perfect for cuddling up with that special someone or a cup of hot cocoa.
Techno is a very lightweight yet extremely warm and soft yarn that is composed of a silk casing around Baby Alpaca and Merino Wool fibers. Because the fibers are blown in, the yarn blooms after blocking, and has a slightly fuzzy halo.
Kit includes pattern and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
