The Cinder KAL has begun! Check out this blogpost for all the KAL related details.

Cinder uses Primrose Yarn Co Cottage DK, and Kelsey has kits available! There are a number of gorgeous color combinations to choose from. Follow this link to go straight to the kits! Cottage DK is a beautiful, luxurious yarn, and I loved using it.

With a dramatic and beautiful colorwork yoke, Cinder is sure to make a statement. Bold colorwork with two contrast colors encircles the yoke while the body and sleeves remain simple. The colorwork is very enjoyable to knit, and it is great fun to watch the pattern develop. For best results, chose three colors (main color, CC1, and CC2) that contrast strongly with each other. Cinder is knit seamlessly from the top down in the round.
