Product Details

Valley Yarns Kalahari is a luxury, clean-lined, and slightly cropped women's popover knit in Taconic. The sweater features a mistake-rib hem with stockinette stitch to enrich both fit and style with an overlapping v-neckline and knitted-on sleeves making this an attainable piece for newer knitters. At the same time, noteworthy construction details keep experienced knitters captivated. Kalahari is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed. Taconic is a soft blend of Merino wool and cashmere, with multicolored tweedy flecks that give the finished fabric a fantastic visual texture.
