Festive Doodle Sweater Knit Kit

Made by Sea Change Fibers

Sold out

The Festive Doodle is a top-down circular yoke sweater knit in 4 colors. In spite of the complex appearance of this design, it is actually fairly easy to knit, with only 2 colors per round and no long floats to carry, making this a wonderful project to keep your hands busy and calm your mind. Even though this project is knit with fingering weight yarn on small-ish needles, we flew through getting the sample done. You simply can't put it down! We are featuring the Festive Doodle as our November Monday's Virtual Knit-along. Join us for our free knit-along and get support throughout the knitting of your sweater!

We created Festive Doodle Knit Kits in fabulous color combinations of Sea Change Fibers' Seacliff Fingering Yarn. These yarns are a California fiber shed product made from local Rambouillet wool and hand-dyed in small batches. It's the lightest, softest yarn we've ever felt! If we don't have enough of the color you want, just let us know and we can get more for you. Each kit contains 1 skein of 4 different colors and the pattern. Depending on your size and gauge, you may need an additional skein(s) - please see the sizing and notes below. Needles are not included in this kit, but can be purchased separately if needed.

Ribbing: US 2 (2.75mm)
Body: US 3 (3.25mm) *
