We are excited to announce Kelbourne Woolens and designer Jacqueline Cieslak's 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!

The Kelbourne Woolens site has swatched some of the Mojave colors. Here are some suggestions for yarn colors that achieve a similar effect that are in the Northfield Yarn Mojave Collection:
Kelbourne Woolens Swatch Colors
Our Suggestions for a Similar Effect
Bright Yellow & Seafoam
Dandelion & Seafoam
Flamingo Pink & Coral
Raspberry & Coral
Flamingo Pink & Dandelion
Raspberry & Dandelion
Seafoam & Cactus
Seafoam & Sky Blue
We also 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.
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.

XS / 3 skeins per color / 40"
