So colorful and cozy! BabyCocktails' Mango Smoothie has an allover texture motif, and is accented by a few bold cables to create flattering lines. It looks great in Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky - which knits up distinctly, but with a slight halo from the single ply wool & alpaca mix. The pattern is a breeze to knit - it's easy to memorize and quick to work up, and the cables make it possible to modify your shaping if desired. Bershire Bulky is available in an entire rainbow of colors, so you can find whatever shade your heart desires!

the pattern is poorly written leaving a lot to try to figure out. after ripping out 3 times I think I have patt of it figured out. the sweater itself will be beautiful and the yarn is gorgeous. it is just the pattern that leaves a LOT to try to figure out. I am an advanced knitter and have never had pattern problems before.
