Mary Carol loves this yarn and pattern combo so we've put together some kits for you in six spring-y colors and two size options. Cardo means thistle in Spanish so this yarn should make a great Spring/Summer knit. Lamarr proves that a quick-knitting gauge doesn’t have to mean a heavy garment. Come on in to the shoppe to check out the sample MC made!
The Lamarr cropped sweater is worked sideways in one piece beginning at the left cuff and ending at the right cuff. At the side of the neck opening, the body divides temporarily. Then you'll seam up the sleeves and add the bottom ribbing--piece of cake!
Lamarr Sweater kits are being sold in 2 sizes: 8 skeins for sizes 1, 2 & 3 and 10 skeins for sizes 4 & 5. Lamarr is designed with a cropped silhouette and recommended positive ease of at least 4".
Sizes: Finished Lower Body Circumference: 42 (47, 53, 59, 65)".
Length: 15.5 (16.75, 17.75, 17.75, 18)"
Manos del Uruguay Cardo is a semi-solid, chunky weight, 4-ply yarn made of 100% Uruguayan Corriedale wool. Because it is hand-dyed, there will be variations from skein to skein. To blend skeins, work from two different skeins at a time, alternating two rows from one skein with two rows from the other.
