Palmetto Dandelion Kit

Palmetto

by Emilia Jensen for Pom Pom Quarterly Issue 22 / Autumn 2017

NOTE: Pom Pom magazine, needles and notions are not included in this kit.

The Kit comes with the yarn in a lovely Loop cotton shopper bag, which you can use as your project bag!
The savings you will make are based on not having to buy a full skein of the two CC, thus saving on purchasing another full skein, as well as getting a Loop bag!

The Palmetto kit comes in 2 sizes:

Kit A: To make sizes 1-4
 includes 3 full skeins of Dandelion Yarns Rosy Sport in the colour 'Steady Night' and a half skein each (50g) of both 'Powder Cake' and 'Dirty Gold', which is enough yarn to make Palmetto.

Kit B: To make sizes 5-7
includes 4 full skeins of Dandelion Yarns Rosy Sport in the colour 'Steady Night' and a half skein each (50g) of both 'Powder Cake' and 'Dirty Gold', which is enough yarn to make Palmetto.

Please note that we are not making kits for size 8.

Notes: Palmetto is worked from the bottom up and in the round with a centre front steek. Shoulder stripes are made using the German short row method. Sleeves are knitted top down, picking up stiches around the armhole and decreasing to cuff.

About the yarn: Beautiful Organic Merino wool that is hand-dyed in Sweden. It's a 100% Organic Merino extra fine wool that is also machine washable. 
It' soft and has a springy feel when you knit with it. So lovely!

Come and see the samples in the London shop of both the original version as well as Anna Strandberg's (of Dandelion Yarns) version knit using 'Feeling Brave' as the main colour!

We also sell Dandelion Yarns Rosy Sport in a range of 28 colours if you would like to purchase the yarns separately.
