July 10: This yarn will be dyed to order and will ship within four weeks. 

Each skein begins with a rainbow of colours that will form the yoke, and then a long purple and grey section which you'll use for both the body and arms. 

Pattern: The stripes are designed for a top-down, seamless sweater. We recommend the Classic Cardigan or the Simple Sweater by Tin Can Knits. The sample shown here is the Simple Sweater in the newborn size. 

Yarn requirements for the Classic Cardigan and Simple Sweater: 

100 g: newborn, 3-6 months, 6-12 months 

150 g: 1-2 years, 2-4 years

What's the difference between the two sizes? The 150 g skein has wider stripes for the rainbow colours, allowing for a bigger/wider/deeper yoke.
