The Warren Jacket

Spring and Summer sweaters can be a challenge for our climate, but we often need something extra on our shoulders when in chilly air conditioned spaces. Any yarn that knits up quickly is usually too heavy, but not Ripple by Tahki. It is all cotton, drapey and knits to a worsted gauge.

This sweater is taking the country by storm!

We have the yarn and the pattern in stock now. Our knitting teachers Lisa and Jennifer are both making new garments. Jennifer is making the Warren Jacket and Lisa is using the Ripple yarn to make the Tessa Vest.

Come see us and check it out!
