Instant Crush Yarn Kit - Mustard

$81.00

| /

Our Instant Crush Yarn Kits include the yarn needed to create Joji Locatelli's latest sweater design. 
Kits will be dyed-to-order and will ship within 7 days.

The pattern can be purchased separately from Joji's Ravelry store here.

Instant Crush is a seamless, top-down, colorwork pullover worked using only 2 strands of silk/mohair yarn throughout the entire project.

Even though it is a colorwork project and the fabric warm & thick (equivalent to a DK/8ply weight), this sweater is light as air due to the choice of fibres used in the design.

The colorwork motifs are fully charted for all sizes.

INSTANT CRUSH YARN KITS

This project is worked using 2 strands of laceweight mohair/silk held together throughout. 

Our kits have been design in Louie & Lola Yarns Mohair Silk Lace - 72% Kid Mohair / 28% Mulberry Silk (420m/50g) using four different colourways.

All kits have been designed to meet the meterage requirements for each size. 

It is important you swatch and achieve the pattern gauge, as this will affect yarn usage.  Likewise, any pattern modifications such as additional body or sleeve length will affect yarn usage.  Should you wish to purchase an additional skein/s to enable pattern modifications please don't hesitate to Contact Us.

Each kit contains:

  • Size 1: 1 skein each of colours 1-4
  • Sizes 2-5: 2 skeins of colour 1 and 1 skein each of colours 2-4
  • Sizes 6-10: 3 skeins of colour 1 and 2 skeins each of colours 2-4

The Mustard Kit comprises:

Colour 1: Mustard (Main colour)
Colour 2: Caramel
Colour 3: Antique
Colour 4: Marmalade

NEEDLES

4 mm and 3 mm circular needles.
Other notions: Stitch markers, stitch holders (or waste yarn), tapestry needle.

GAUGE
19 st and 25 rows to 4” 10 cm in Colorwork pattern (Stockinette st) on 4 mm needles.

Before you measure, please take the time to wash and block your swatch in the same manner that you will wash and block your sweater. Take into consideration that double stranded mohair creates a fabric with fewer rows per inch than other fabrics.
Also, make sure your colors don’t bleed when in contact with soap. Read the Finishing section for some tips if this happens.

***

All yarns are hand dyed in small batches using professional quality acid dyes and heat set to ensure colours that will last.

Every effort has been made to remove any excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain, particularly with dark and rich colours.  It is therefore recommended to gently hand wash your hand dyed projects on their own, in cold water, with wool wash or a mild detergent.

Shipping will be calculated at checkout.
