Valley Yarns 669 Light Roast Cardigan
From micro-roasting connoisseurs of single estate beans to paper-writing students in need of late-night refueling, Western Massachusetts is steeped in coffee culture. As many aficionados will be quick to inform you, a light to medium roast not only highlights the full varietal flavors of the bean, but also offers the biggest caffeine payload. Knit in the color of a light-roasted coffee bean at a soft and open gauge for Valley Yarns Charlemont, the wavy, lacy details of this cropped cardigan can really shine. The only seaming involved in this bottom-up project is the 2 short shoulder seams—set-in cap sleeves are picked up from the armhole and worked down.
