Yes! Our new Major yarn (no pun intended) is here, and we’re shipping it off to LYSes as we speak! We love this yarn. It comes in a big, beautiful, squeezable skein. How big?
Big. 200g/328yds of bulky self-striping goodness.
We love this yarn. We’ve already had a great time designing with it, as with the Pineapple Peacock Shawl at right. Two balls of Major on aUS Size K-10½ (6.5 mm) hook makes a really dramatic and satisfying piece.
But to really celebrate, we’re sharing a new free pattern in Major every day this week! Today: the Blue Heartstrings Pullover.
Knitted in pieces and seamed, this sweater features crossed cables are repeated on the front and back (back view shown at right).
The yarn quantity given is enough to complete the project for that particular size. However, if you want to be doubly sure to match the striping on the front/back and sleeves, you may wish to purchase an extra ball in order to start at the same place in the color patterning in the yarn ball.
Tune in tomorrow to see what’s next!
