Pattern 9920 - Life DK, Colour Twist

Cardigans

These easy knit jackets will be a great hit in our NEW Colour Twist collection. The long-sleeved jacket features fitted sleeves and an edge-to-edge border whilst the three-quarter sleeved jacket features oversized sleeves with a turn back border and chunky cuffs. All topped off with pockets on both garments. We just love the contrasting navy shade, in Life DK, with the pretty pink Petals shade in Colour Twist. The Pebble jacket is not without interest either, with a variety of subtle colours scattered within an overall cool neutral shade.

Life DK is a luxurious yet practical yarn, available in a wide choice of colours. We mix 25% wool with 75% premium acrylic and this makes the yarn is soft and supple, as well as being easy on the hands to work with. Life DK washes and wears extremely well and is perfect for a whole range of projects due to the versatile nature of the yarn.

Colour Twist

Colour Twist is a 100% premium acrylic yarn that's not just eye catching but is also super soft to touch. Presented in a new convenient 100g pull skein, it is designed to be pulled from the middle with a handy label. Colour twist creates a random pattern effect as you knit. This is because the individual plys are separately dyed and then twisted to give this subtle multitonal effect and lovely textured look to the patterns we have designed.
