Please allow 2-3 weeks turnaround time for all orders.

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 section of deep green-y black 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 is Flax Light by Tin Can Knits modified to make it a cardigan (details here). Size 0-6 month.

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. If you use the larger skein for a newborn sweater, you'll have to divide for the arms well before you've knit the full rainbow. 

This is the SWEATER version of this colourway; the rest of the Whiskey in a Teacup collection is here.
