The Soldotna Crop is a beautiful DK weight colorwork cropped sweater designed by Caitlin Hunter. I recently knit one for myself and as a sample of my booth, which I loved knitting and love wearing! Many of you have expressed interest in having one of your own in the yarn colors I used, so I’m putting this listing up so that you can build your own set!
The yarn in this listing is priced 15% off regular price to make your sweater quantity more affordable! While I have some of this yarn currently dyed up and in stock, I’m making this a dye-to-order listing in case I do not have the necessary quantity of a color for your order. This way, multiple skeins of the same color in your order are guaranteed to come from the same dye batch. Orders will ship in no more than 2-3 weeks.
Note that the pattern is not included in this listing, nor does this listing presume any collaboration with the designer. Please go to Ravelry to purchase the pattern directly from the designer.
My sweater was knit in our Beguiled DK weight base. The colors I used are shown in the third picture and are labeled accordingly:
Color 1 – Mirth (tonal burgundy)
Color 2 – Sand
Color 3 – Reverie (tonal teal/blue-green)
Color 4 – Silvery Gray.
I’m offering these colors on both of our DK weight bases, so you can choose no sparkle or sparkle!
Bona Fide – DK, 100% SW Merino, 231 yards per 100 gram skein
Beguiled – DK, 75/20/5 SW Merino/Nylon/Stellina, 231 yards per 100 gram skein
Please check your garment size and yarn requirements on the Ravelry pattern page, and take into account any modifications you’ll be making so you know how much yarn to order. I found the pattern’s yarn requirements to be fairly accurate, but if you’re on the edge of one skein or two, I’d always recommend getting the extra skein if you can.
Recommended care: Our superwash bases can be machine washed, though we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air drying flat.
All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
