Product Details

Valley Yarns Lemondrop is a women’s long sweater with a unique twist knit in Northfield. The pullover has an open front joined at the bust by a conventional Celtic knot cable, balanced by complementary cables on the back and sleeves. Lemondrop is knit flat in one piece from the bottom up, and the fronts are joined in the round at the bust to work the cable. The sleeves are worked flat from the bottom up and then seamed. Valley Yarns Northfield is a glorious blend of Merino, baby alpaca, and silk. Northfield has a slight sheen from the silk, adding a touch of sophistication to this delightful yarn. The cable patterns are charted and written out.
