- Five-Strand, Space-Dyed 100% Cotton Cardigan Kit, designed by Joy McGrath
for Ironstone Yarns, from smoke-free home. Color combo: Hot Bright. Gauge:
2.5 sts = 1" on US #13 needles. Finished sizes: Small is 41.5", medium is

size large. 5 matched buttons included. All yarns in original put up.
To knit this cardigan, you work with 5 strands of yarn throughout: 2 strands
of Flake Cotton and 3 strands of Space Dyed Novelty Yarn. There are 6 colors
of Flake Cotton: purple, hot pink, black, turquoise, golden yellow, and
orange. The Space Dyed Yarn is variegated and contains all the colors that
are in the Flake Cotton. Each color gets assigned a number. You'll start out
with, say, colors 1 and 2 of the Flake Cotton and three strands of the
Novelty Yarn. You then switch to colors 2 and 3 and the three strands of the
Novelty Yarn, and so on. The Novelty Yarn remains a constant, but the other
colors change, and you get a lovely shaded effect.
