FREE PATTERN included in kit!
Join us for a Knit-a-Long (KAL) with Blue Sky Fibers, October 19 - December 31, as we host and knit the Lake Melissa Sweater using either Metalico or Alpaca Silk. More info will be available in our Ravelry group, here. (Start anytime...all are welcome.)
Made from 50% Alpaca and 50% Silk, these two yarn lines have the same gauge, making them interchangeable (!) and the perfect option for this elegant and cozy fall sweater. Great for intermediate knitters; KAL participants will knit this piece flat and seam, creating plenty of positive ease. The pattern is written for sizes XS through 4X, with a chest circumference of up to 62¾”. With 30 colors available between Metalico and Alpaca Silk, you will find the perfect color to knit this luxurious and silky fall sweater, designed by Sloane Gillam Lacasse. Don’t see your color? Reach out to us and we’ll special order it for you!
