Love a loose fit look? Want to branch out into stranded colourwork or just love making yoked styles? Make your next knit the Bleideag sweater with this kit. Bleideag could even be your first sweater project. The kit will provide you with the pattern and yarn you need to make it in your size, from XS - 5XL. Bleideag could be a good first knit for beginners to stranded colourwork.


Using warm but relatively light yarn, this is a great pattern for a more experienced knitter or someone less advanced who wants to try stranded colourwork. This drapey, loose-fitting sweater kit helps you create a colourwork yoke knit in a combination of shades that expresses your style.

Bleideag

The Bleideag sweater is a drapey design with a delicate yoke. It's knitted from the bottom up, in the round, and could be a good introduction for beginners to stranded colourwork. The pattern includes 15 sizes, with a finished chest circumference of 38" to 66", roughly equivalent to ready to wear sizes XS-5XL.  A more detailed description can be found on the Bleideag pattern page.
