Description

Note: Orders that include this yarn will ship on Tuesday May 18th as I am waiting for it to arrive from my supplier! : )

Tibetan DK is a luxurious yarn comprised of 60% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Silk and 20% Yak.  It is a beautiful soft to the touch yarn that has a beautiful shine and has a number of plies which makes it suitable for use in jumpers as well as other items.  It is a brown/grey shade due to the yak.  It has 212m per 100g skein.  It is one of our favourite yarns to dye here at Banshee Yarns but it is very also magnificent in it’s undyed colour.

Two skeins of this yarn is enough to make our Circle Skirt shawl, which is available for free in our Simply the Simplest Shawl pattern book that you receive when you sign-up to our newsletter.

About the pattern

This sweater has been designed as a teaching garment and includes a number of techniques. If you are a Knit School member, this pattern is included in your Pattern Library.

The sweater is designed to be worn according to your bust size. As it is a batwing style sweater, there will be a lot of ease throughout the body. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you want it to be more fitted (although it will still have a lot of ease).

The wingspan in sizes 1 to 5 is based on above the elbow to above the elbow measurements. The wingspan in sizes 6 to 9 is based on mid lower arm to mid lower arm. This is to preserve the batwing shape of the sleeves.

Needles & Notions

  • Sizes 1 to 5: 3.5mm 100cm circular needle, 4mm 120cm circular needle and spare 4mm for the three-needle cast-off.
    • Sizes 6 to 9: 3.5mm 120cm circular needle, 4mm 150cm circular needle and spare 4mm for the three-needle cast-off.
