Emma's Comfy Cotton DK

Spring weather inspires most knitters to try a new yarn blend and we have a *brand new* merino/cotton base for you straight from the dye studio of Emma's Yarn!

Emma's Comfy Cotton DK is a tonal and gentle speckle-y sensation. Cotton keeps your finished piece cooler with fabulous drape and merino gives that block-able structure that makes your colorwork pop!

SOLDOTNA CROP by Caitlin Hunter

We're loving the Soldotna Crop with Comfy Cotton DK. It's a top-down circular yoke sweater that features Caitlin Hunter's world-famous stranded colorwork. She designed this sweater with Portland’s unpredictable spring weather in mind. You can layer this little top over linen dresses as well high-waisted skirts and pants. The design can easily be lengthened if crops aren’t your style, and the instructions are included in the pattern. This design is simple enough for an adventurous beginner, yet still engaging for advanced knitters. Best of all, the cropped length and cap sleeved style make this a super quick and gratifying project. Try it in our Loops exclusive colorway-Cloud 9 :D

For your Soldotna you'll need the following number of skeins of Comfy Cotton DK to fit f
