What would a kangaroo look like if it wore the speckled pullover of its dreams? Experience the cozy sensation of the Kangarullover enveloping your body in warmth.This squishy speckled garment is knit with several simple shapes that are seamlessly joined together using Westknits modular knitting techniques. Hold 2 strands of DK weight yarn together as you fade and stripe your colors. The front panel features a giant pocket for you to stash all your favorite yarns and treasures. This garment is a great stash buster! Don’t be afraid to throw in some fluff and stuff or even some sparkly metallic yarns and bounce like a kangaroo!

The Small size requires a bit less yardage, but I recommend using a colorful pile of yarns mixed together for generous color possibilities.
