Louisiana Sweater Kit

$ 67.00
Color: XS - Color 18/ 2 balls + pattern
Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon Only 5 left!
Note from PetiteKnit: The Louisiana Sweater is worked from the top down with raglan increases on the yoke. The ribbing at the neck edge is folded and knitted together to form the neckline. The Louisiana Sweater has a short, feminine fit. The sleeves have tight fitting ribbed cuffs. I recommend using the Italian bind-off method on cuffs and hem for a neat, elastic edge. Skill level: advanced beginner.

Note from ImagiKnit: We used 1 strand of Lang's Phoenix yarn for our shop sample, pictured in color 65. The effect is slightly more airy and semi-sheer in spots. If you are local, please come by the shop and check it out in person!
