Valley Yarns 991 Mint Cooler
Valley Yarns Mint Cooler is a cozy and casual oversized tunic
that is just right for wearing over jeans or a pair of trousers. This women’s
pullover is knit in Northampton featuring split hems, drop shoulders and fitted
sleeves. The cuffs and split hems are worked in a textured twist-stitch pattern, and the neckline copies this texture in an easy companion lace pattern. The
split front and back hems are worked in two pieces, then joined to work the
stockinette body in the round to the armholes. Shoulders are worked with short
row shaping to enhance drape and fit. Sleeve stitches are picked up and worked
down from the armholes to the cuffs. Valley Yarns Northampton is a workhorse
yarn that you will come back to time and time again. We sourced soft Peruvian
wool and dyed it in a beautiful collection of solid colors and heathered shades.
The lace patterns are charted and written out.
