Mango Smoothie was a request from my daughter, Maya. She wanted something big and slouchy and easy to wear. We loved this allover texture motif, accented by a few bold cables to create flattering lines. It looks great in the yarn - which knits up distinctly, but with a slight halo from the single ply alpaca mix.

The pattern is a breeze to knit - easy to memorize and quick to work up, and the cables make it possible to modify your shaping if desired.

I love this gorgeous, soft orange - but know that Bershire is available in an entire rainbow of colors from WEBS, so you can find whatever shade your heart desires!


I suggest picking the finished size that gives you 4-6”/10-15.25cm of ease for nice, slouchy fit. However, if you prefer a different look, pick the finished size that will give you the silhouette you desire.
