This Sweater Suits Everyone!

Wanting to knit a sweater on circular needles but don't know where to start? This is the kit for you! The ultimate project to start with, providing simple, repetitive steps but maximum satisfaction. 

The Anker's Sweater is a classic pattern with a special twist. Knitted double stranded using stunning hand-dyed Prosper yarn along with Aplaca Suri Silk Brushed; which feel AMAZING together. Limited edition colourways.

The pattern is from renowned Danish designer Mette from PetiteKnit. It is worked from the top down. This means that you begin by working the ribbed neck edge, then you work the yoke, then the body and finally the sleeves. 

Your kit is carefully packaged and delivered to your door with everything you need to knit your project. 

About the Yarn

Indiecita Baby Alpaca Suri Silk
74% Baby Suri Alpaca, 26% Mulberry Silk. This yarn is like knitting a cloud! This 4-ply equivalent is perfect when mixed with other 4-ply or fingering weight yarns to produce super soft, warm knits. 

Prosper Chuffed Merino Linen 
90% Merino and 10% Belgian Linen. This 4ply (fingering weight) hand-dyed yarn is a delightful blend of 90% Merino and 10% Belgian Linen. This is a super-wash treated merino but we recommend hand washing to maintain the beauty of your finished work. Every skein is unique, just like you.

Sizes: XS / S / M / L / XL
Bust circumference: 92 /96 / 102 / 106 / 116 cm
Total length: 52 / 54 / 56 / 60 / 62 cm
Sleeves can be 3/4 or full length
