Love Note Sweater Kit
This sweet, super-popular sweater from Tin Can Knits features simple lace and a high-low hemline, and knits up quickly from the top down. We've put together kits using mohair/silk lace and single-ply merino to create a soft, light, and sensual fabric. And don't worry... the lace pattern is both charted and written out! The kits contain enough yarn to choose from either the cropped or the regular length.
If you're in a hurry to cast on and don't want to bother figuring out yarn requirements, let us do the work for you. Use the drop-down menu to select your colour and size, then sit back, relax, and wait for your kit to arrive.
Each kit includes full skeins of fingering-weight, single ply superwash yarn (either Malabrigo Mechita or Lichen & Lace 1-Ply Superwash Merino) and full skeins of mohair/silk lace weight yarn (Lichen & Lace Marsh Mohair).
Please note that patterns are *not* included with Love Note kits, but they're available for purchase through Ravelry.
