Kim Dyes Yarn Cheesecake Minis
Kim Dyes Yarn Cheesecake DK is every bit as rich and luxurious as you could dream it to be. This merino silk blend has *stitch definition* and enough silk sheen to glow up a cloudy day.
We have two colorful mini-skein sets available for the "Pride Yoke" pullover by Knits N Knots! Kim's hand dyed colors just dance around this colorful yoke- a *perfect* first sweater for those of you that might be intimidated by using multiple colors at once. *Please Note* Your 6 mini skeins are bundled in to one skein. You are purchasing all 6 colors, enough to make one yoke for your sweater.
The Pride Yoke sweater is knit seamlessly from the top-down and is designed to have approx. 2-4” of positive ease, so you can try it on as you go and get your perfect length. Choose your favorite sleeve length...and maybe add stripes to the cuffs?! (Check out the creative projects in Ravelry!). We love the size-inclusive pattern with sizes from XS-5XL!
Loops Trooper Karen knit hers using size 6 needles, with Whipped Cream as the main color and the Rainbow mini-skeins. Also try it in Buttercream with the Dark Rainbow minis for an earthier look!
