Strathcona Color Block Knit Kit

Made by Loopy Mango


2 in stock

The Strathcona Sweater pattern by Good Night Day is one of our all time favorite knits. We've made it up in many different yarns, but this color block version using Loopy Mango Merino No. 5 is a real stand out. The color combinations make it super fresh and fun! If you're new to knitting garments, have no fear! This sweater is a great beginner pattern. The Strathcona is a raglan sweater knit in the round from the top down. No seaming! The whole things knits up really quickly since it's made with super bulky yarn on big needles. Our kit includes the pattern, color blocking notes, and all the yarn needed. Needles are not included in the kit, but can be purchased if needed.
