Stephanie Earp Collection | Fall 2021

 

This simple yoke sweater has fun with marling - a technique where two yarns are held together to create a new color. In this case, natural grey Alpaca Heather is held alternatively with two different colors of mohair laceweight Cabrito, giving almost a watercolour effect. 

For ease of knitting in the colourwork and striped i-cord sections, wind separate bobbins of the base color and hold each with a different shade of the Cabrito, instead of trying to switch out the mohair stitch by stitch.
