The Daydreamer Sweater Kit
Are you in love with Andrea Mowry's beautiful sweater "The Daydreamer?" Well, what a coincidence... so are we! This v-neck, cropped pullover is full of beautiful textures and details: honeycomb cables, twisted stitches, and bobbles. It combines a single-ply fingering weight yarn with a strand of lace weight silk mohair to get a soft, luxurious fabric. Try this pullover with high-waisted trousers, mom jeans, skirts, or layered over dresses and tunics. We've seen it turned around and worn backwards, and we're not sure which way we prefer... we'll leave that one up to you.
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) in a coordinating colour.
Please note that patterns are *not* included with The Daydreamer kits, but they're available for purchase through Ravelry.

Please consider ordering one size up if you plan to add length to your sweater.
This was a birthday present for myself, it was kind of a splurge but I couldn't resist! The yarn is stunning and the mohair/silk is perfect with it. It's going to take me sooo long to knit this but I'm so stoked! Thank you so much for the amazing customer service!
