Cardi Cocoon Yarn Kit
This is a listing for the yarn necessary to knit the Cardi Cocoon by Anne Ventzel. This is a soft, fluffy cardigan with a simple and elegant honeycomb cable pattern. It's a relaxing knit that hums along at a worsted gauge of 19sts/10cm.
The cardigan is worked from the top down. It comes in two sizes a S/M & L/XL. The S/M has a 126cm chest and is 85cm in length. The L/XL has a 152 chest and is 90cm in length. The pattern is sold separately here.
This yarn kit includes Pip, a 100% Merino Wool Lace Weight yarn, held with two strands of Mint, a Super Kid Mohair Silk Lace Weight yarn. The S/M uses 1500m of each yarn: 2 Pip + 8 Mint. The L/XL uses 1800m in each yarn: 3 Pip + 8 Mint. Please note on the L/XL you may need to knit your swatch (or purchase an additional skein of Mint) as the Mint meterage is spot on.
The pattern calls for 4 and 5mm needles. We got gauge using 4.5mm & 5.5mm needles.

We try our best to make our photos as accurate as possible but every screen displays colour slightly differently, so we cannot guarantee complete accuracy. Hand-dyed yarns vary from one batch to the next so there will always be some variation between the photo and each individual skein.
Part of the hand dyed allure is each skein's individuality. This gives final objects depth and nuance. With this in mind we recommend alternating skeins (every other row in flat knitting and every row in circular knitting) on larger projects creating a more cohesive blend.
