Boyland Knitworks - Alyeska Sweater
Inspired by the grey mountain skyline of Alaskan winter, Ritual Dyes created a beautiful palette for this design collaboration! A gradient set of 4 colors paired with a pop color in fuzzy, cozy mohair make this a really fun and special knit!
This sweater is designed to fit with 4-8” 10-20.5 cm of positive ease at the bust and 0-1.25” 0-3 cm of positive ease at the sleeves. A size chart is included in the pattern to help you choose the correct size for you.
Loop carries many beautiful hand-dyed colours for the 4ply and the mohair / silk blend for this gorgeous sweater!

To achieve a similar look to the original design, choose a gradient of 4 colors for C1-C4,
and a contrasting pop color for C5. In the original sample C5 is worked in fingering weight mohair, but you can substitute the mohair and knit with yarn that is
the same fiber content/structure as the other colors if preferred. C1-C4 are ordered from lightest to darkest.
