Fun, colorful, and beginner-friendly, Valley Yarns SweeTango is a snuggly wrap perfect for fall and winter layering. SweeTango is knit flat in one piece from end to end with garter stitch stripes accenting the color changes along the stockinette stitch background. Valley Yarns Easthampton is a smooth and soft blend of superwash Merino wool and nylon that sports beautiful self-striping colorways. Easthampton’s long color shifts add extra interest to your finished projects, and the stripe patterns can add different looks depending on the width of your work. The same yarn used in the body of SweeTango is also used to pick up and knit the eyelet detail ribbed trims, and the shifting shades frame the center with thin stripes. With a range of colorways to choose from, you’ll be sure to find just the right one to complement your cool weather wardrobe for your own SweeTango!
