I'm so pleased to be offering Yarn Sets for the gorgeous new Seaside V-Neck pattern by Juliana Lustenader! Each set includes Seaside (main color) and Siren's Song (contrasting color) in the Bouncy DK yarn base. Make sure to check the size and yardage requirements below.
I loved Jules' description of her inspiration for the pattern: "The Seaside V-Neck is inspired by many things: One, the beautiful hand-dyed colorway “Seaside” made by Nina of Speckled Finch Studios; Two, the area where the crashing sea meets the rocky Northern California coastline, which so happens to be where both designer and dyer live as neighbors."
Below are the yarn requirements for the pattern:
XS (S, M, L, 1XL)( 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL) = 34 (38, 42, 46, 50)(54, 58, 62, 66)” / 86 (96.5, 106.5, 117, 127)(137, 147, 157.5, 168) cm finished bust.
This sweater is fitted in the sleeves and loose in the body. Choose the size that best fits upper arm circumference of the intended wearer.
Sample size: M on 38”/96.5 bust model.
MC: 630 (705, 785, 865, 950)(1035, 1110, 1170, 1225) yards / 576 (645, 718, 791, 868)(946, 1015, 1070, 1120) meters total, or 3 (4, 4, 4, 4)(5, 5, 6, 6) skeins of colorway “Seaside”

Every skein is dyed with professional acid dyes and with a lot of love and care! I use a variety of techniques to get unique colorways. One of the beauties of hand-dyed yarn is that each skein will be slightly unique - some may have more speckles, some a little more concentration of a color. While I do use specially crafted formulas to keep colorways as consistent as possible, no two skeins will be exactly the same. I recommend that you alternate skeins every couple of rows when using more than one skein of the same colorway. If you order multiple skeins, I will do my best to match them as best I can.
Please note that while I always try my best capture the colors correctly when photographing, with different monitors colors can vary greatly in appearance. I am the sole owner and dyer at Speckled Finch Studios and only dye in small batches.
Recommended care: hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
**Regarding Gauge: Please note that gauge varies depending on the knitter, needle size and project. Please make sure to do a gauge swatch when knitting a pattern. Additional gauge and suggested needle info can be found at the Craft Yarn Council here.
