  • YARN

    Heavy worsted / aran weight yarn with a suggested gauge of 4.5 sts per inch / 2.5cm. The hood and gathered yoke require a yarn with good drape that won’t be too stiff or uncomfortably bulky. The honeycomb pattern used on the edges is a cable pattern and requires some stitch definition, but its deep texture works well in the somewhat fuzzy alpaca blends shown.
