Gumdrop Sweater Kit
Meet the Gumdrop Sweater Kit! This sweater is a fun, lightweight and colorful garment to wear in warmer temps. Worked from the top down seamlessly, this lovely little raglan sleeve sweater uses Serenity boucle yarn accented with mini-skeins of Wildflower yarn. The wide linen stitch hem recalls a stack of cheerful gum drops. There are options for different neck styles (Crew, Turtleneck, or Square) as well as options for sleeves (Straight and Puff). Feel free to mix and combine these options to make the perfect sweater for you!
