Yonagatsuki Yarn Kit

              

You too could knit this beautiful Yonagatsuki Cardigan designed by the amazing Eri in the beautiful Cowgilblues DK / 8ply that I used for my version ( I used the colour Charcoal ). This yarn is a beautiful hand dyed 100% merino 8ply / DK yarn that has the most amazing stitch definition, making it the perfect yarn to highlight the beautiful stitch detail on the sleeves of Eri's amazing design. 

Eri descibes her design in the following manner. Yonagatsuki is a raglan cardigan worked from the top down. Once the yoke is completed and the sleeves are separated at the underarm, the lower body is worked to the hem with forethought pockets, and the stitches are set on hold. The neckband is then worked from picked up stitches and finished off with i-cord, together with body hem stitches. The sleeves are worked top-down in the round to the cuffs, with the cable panel. Finally, the pockets are knitted in the round and closed with 3-needle bind off.
