Bleideag kit

Bleideag combines the more affordable Létt Lopi as the main colour and Einrúm for the yoke, really highlighting Einrúm's beauty. We've put together 4 colour combinations for you to choose from.

Bleideag is worked from the bottom up in the round. The sleeves and body are joined at the underarm and the yoke is also worked in the round, with decreases subtly incorporated into the colourwork. The pattern includes directions for optional short row bust shaping, for different cup sizes. Short rows are also used to lower the yoke at the front and raise the back of the neck for a more comfortable fit. Bleideag includes fifteen sizes, from a finished chest measurement of 38" to 66". Shown in size 7 with C/D bust darts and 7 inches of positive ease.

Kits are made to order and will ship in 1-2 business days.
