Crave Caravan - KS 5.0

$ 38.49

Knit Star Åsa Söderman will be teaching you her genius Ziggurat sweater method using your choice of the Crave Caravan or Rohrspatz & Wollmeise base "Blend" (see this listing for "Blend"). And she's included a bonus mini cardigan pattern as well (see below for details). 

It will be a simple and easy to wear Ziggurat cardigan with open, slightly overlapping fronts, an optional gather in back, an on-trend cropped length, and a 3/4 or 7/8 sleeve with a keyhole cuff.

Caravan is a hand-dyed, custom-milled combination of fine merino, cashmere, camel and mulberry silk with a twist that adds strength without compromising the hand or drape of the fabric. Our custom colorway, "Interlude," is a stunning grey that will keep you gazing at the lavender overtones. 

For Wave 2 of Knit Stars 5.0, we have added 3 more color options: "Cimarron," "Whisperlike," and "Idyll." As a light sport weight yarn, Caravan offers welcome versatility, being a good choice for both sport weight and fingering weight projects.
