We have decided on the colours for you in a palette that will be pleasing on many different skin tones and will wear well with jeans or you can dress it up to go with a pencil skirt or black pants! One things for sure, these colours will be very cheerful with anything you pair with it.
We have included enough yarn for you to be able to knit the long sleeve version if you choose to.

Yarn type is as follows:
SUPERFINE DK (per skein)
100% superwash superfine merino
approx. 250 yards/skein
hand wash | air dry
BUST SIZES AVAILABLE:
The pattern recommends 4" of positive ease so that means you should measure around your bust and add 4" to your measurement. If you prefer a less loose fit, you can add 2" to your bust size measurement. Our model is wearing hers with about 2-3" of ease and wearing a size 3 with short sleeves. We have included enough yardage for you to be able to knit the full sleeve version if you prefer.
Our sample knitter notes the following on her knit: "I got gauge on US 2 & 4. Followed the pattern instructions for the 3rd size through the sleeve separation (in the middle of the silver color). Finished the silver/teal combo on the sleeves, with ribbing in teal. Knit 3 more complete chart repeats (19 x 3). Skipped to ribbing - knit 1” in orange and finished with 1” in red to complete color progression and end on same color as collar."
NEEDLE SIZE: US 4 (3.5 mm) & US 6 (4mm) or size needed for gauge (please note above what our sample knitter used to obtain gauge on her knit with our yarn)
