The Pennycress Kit from Valley Yarns includes the PDF pattern download and all of the Haydenville DK yarn needed to knit this classic cardigan in Persimmon.
Pennycress is a versatile wardrobe staple worked in smooth and soft Haydenville DK, a Merino and acrylic blend yarn with a slight sheen that showcases texture beautifully. This crew-neck cardigan is knit flat from the top down, with eyelets forming the raglan yoke shaping and sleeves worked down in the round after the body is complete. A Twisted rib stitch pattern on the buttonbands and cuffs adds an extra bit of elegance to this timeless sweater. Twisted rib stitch pattern is both charted and written out.
