We are so excited to join Kelbourne Woolens and designer Jacqueline Cieslak to host a Rift sweater knit-along featuring one of the newest yarns in our shop, Mojave. This KAL features a simple, easy-to-knit sweater with a creative twist: two colors of Mojave are marled together to create a quick project that is all your own.
We knitted up swatches using the colors of Mojave that we have in stock at the shop, which are a bit different than the swatches that Kelbourne Woolens created. We encourage you to create your own combinations, too! Check out Kelbourne Woolens' blog post about swatching for Rift using two colors of Mojave held together for tips.
We have two neutral colors in stock, Natural and Smoke Grey, that can be paired with any of our bright colors to give a more toned-down effect. We especially recommend Smoke Gray paired with Raspberry and Natural paired with Seafoam Green. Both Smoke Gray and Natural would also pair beautifully with Sky Blue.
Choosing a Size for Your Marled Rift Sweater
Rift is designed for a finished bust measurement of 40 (44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72) inches. To choose your size, measure the circumference around the fullest part of your bust, then add 6-12” (depending on how much ease you want) and choose the closest size. Please see schematic for more detailed finished measurements.
Kelbourne Woolens has organized the sizes into four groups corresponding with the following finished bust sizes and yarn requirements:
• XS / 3 skeins per color / 40"
• S / 4 skeins per color / 44, 48, 52"
• M / 5 skeins per color / 56, 60, 64"
• L / 6 skeins per color / 68, 72"
