Party Mix is a raglan A-line sweater you can make from the many irresistible spinning fiber bumps you’ve picked up in moments of weakness, or from the encroaching fiber club stash. In harmonious or contrasting yarns, the seamed components highlight the colorful textures unique to yarn spun from hand painted top. Commercial yarns can also fill in the gaps nicely.

If you want to use 100% commercial yarn, a similar effect can be achieved using a self striping yarn such as Noro Silk Garden in coordinating colors, or get a different look with a solid yarn. This sweater gives permission to play.

Special thanks to Amy King of Spunky Eclectic for her inspiring this project in the first place, and to KellyR for her excellent spinning for the front of Version 2.
