Kayla is a women’s effortless multi-season topper knit in Valley Yarns Monadnock. Kayla is a beautiful way to ward off the chill and will look perfect over just about any outfit. The pullover is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed together. Shoulders are shaped with short rows. The neck stitches are picked up and worked in the round. Valley Yarns Monadnock is a velvety soft yarn that embodies luxury. All cashmere, this tweedy yarn is super soft and has excellent visual depth from the multi-colored flecks that are spun into every ball.
