Flor de Jerez Kit includes the PDF pattern download and all the Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK Hand Dyed by Manos del Uruguay in the Bittersweet color designed by Thea Colman of BabyCocktails.
BabyCocktails Flor de Jerez was designed to play with this gorgeous, deep amber yarn in contrasting motifs, using garter stitch, stockinette, and cables. The design itself is quite simple, but the strong lines of the motifs and the subtle shifts in the color makes this sweater stand out. It’s designed with a loose fit through the body and a high hip length to show off the curved hem created by the subtle difference in gauge. Simple raglan seams lead up to a wide neckline and a deep ribbed collar. This is one of those sweaters that is much easier to knit than it looks! Flor de Jerez is knit in Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK Hand Dyed by Manos del Uruguay, a DK weight yarn that is incredibly soft and is an excellent choice for this lovely garment. Note: The Lace Cable stitch pattern is charted only.
