Andrea Mowry’s STRIPES! project knit with these beautiful selections from the Espace Tricot palette is just the colour therapy you need to see you through long winter months of confinement. The bright pops of colour tempered by soft pastels, and the delicious texture of our Halo yarn held double, create a lofty and pretty fabric. The pattern is very clearly written and would be great for a first sweater project: the stripes are addictive and the sweater will seem to fly off your needles. We love how Andrea encourages you to play with colour and make your sweater unique!
Includes 1 skein each of our HALO yarn in Cirque, Les Filles, Hibou, Bonjour/Hi, and Baleine (5 skeins total)
BLUES & GREENS KIT:
Includes 1 skein each of our HALO yarn in Habitant, Cathedral, Chateau, Tempete, and Nuage (5 skeins total)
We knit size 4 with 5 skeins of Halo, held double. We knit it a couple of stripes longer than Andrea recommended, and had enough left of each colour for at least one more stripe. While the yardage of the 5-skein kit doesn’t quite reach the pattern recommendation for size 5 and up, we do think you could knit size 5 to Andrea’s recommended body length with 5 skeins (although you would end on a different colour stripe to our version).
If you would like to knit size 6 or above, please contact us – we would love to help you select additional skeins to coordinate with these kits. Just reach out to us at email@example.com.
