Chromite Kit from Valley Yarns contains the PDF pattern download and all the Colrain and Southampton yarn needed to knit this elegant women’s pullover.
Chromite is a dressy spring tunic that transitions from work to a night out on the town in style. This sweater is knit in pieces from the bottom up, and stitches for the mohair lace hem are picked up along the bottom after seaming. Five colors of Colrain, a worsted weight blend of wool and Tencel® with beautiful drape and a soft sheen, form a dramatic chevron pattern while lightweight and airy Southampton adds a stunning halo to the lace hem. Note: Chevron and Mohair lace patterns are both written and charted.
