Issue 546 • LYS day is Saturday, April 21st
The internet is a poor substitute to feeling the fibers and seeing the colors at your LYS. Show your appreciation of brick-and-mortar yarn shops and everything you love about yarn by sharing your passion for the craft and your favorite yarn store. Spread the word on social media, teach a friend to knit, and bring them to your favorite local yarn shop! Help your LYS celebrate by shopping this Saturday, the first annual LYS Day, April 21st.
The One-of-a-kind-pullover kit in Liberty Wool is available ONLY from your LYS in honor of the first annual LYS day. This simple top down raglan pullover is the perfect blank canvas for your own one of a kind Liberty Wool striped sweater. Use the colors however you want – change colors as you wish, omitting whatever shades you choose. You'll be amazed how well ALL the colors go together, no matter how you combine them! Two sweaters knit from the same colors of Liberty Wool will be completely different depending on how the colors are used.
The kit contains more than enough yarn for all sizes giving you an abundance of freedom in combining colors. Change colors randomly as you wish throughout the sweater. If you change from one ball to the next at a similar color, your stripes will flow seamlessly, and you won't be able to tell where the yarn was changed. The kit contains more than enough yarn for all sizes (finished bust: (32 936, 40, 44, 48)") giving you an abundance of freedom in combining colors.
