Product Details

Valley Yarns Sahara is a stunning must-have women’s mock neck tunic knit in Northampton. The sweater features a striking center cable surrounded by small, graduated side cables on the front and back and repeats the small cables at the shoulders. Sahara is knit in the round from the bottom up to the armholes, then separated for the front and the back. The sleeve stitches are picked up along the armhole edge and worked down to the cuff. Valley Yarns Northampton is a workhorse yarn that you’ll come back to time and time again. We sourced a soft Peruvian wool and dyed it in a beautiful collection of solid colors and heathered shades. The cable patterns are charted and written out.
