Shakespeare In The Park Sweater Kit

Worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom up, this cropped sweater boasts striking bishop sleeves adorned with a simple colorwork motif that is mimicked in the yoke. This wilt surely delight any crowd!
Welcome to the Shakespeare In The Park Sweater Kit. Along with the yarn, you'll receive this beautiful pattern (by email!) for free with yarn purchase.
…’Tis nobler to cast on for this fun sweater than to suffer the slings and arrows of deciding “what will be your next project?”
The Shakespeare In The Park Sweater has been 7+ months in the making and is a dream collaboration with the amazing Park Williams of @Parknknit. This sweater is a whimsical fashion forward piece that showcases Park's beautiful design skills and her signature bold & bountiful sleeve detail.
