SOLDOTNA CROP by Boyland Knitworks

Click here to purchase Soldotna on Ravelry

The Soldotna Crop is a top-down circular yoke sweater that features stranded colorwork. I designed this sweater with Portland’s unpredictable spring weather in mind. I look forward to layering this little top over linen dresses as well as high-waisted skirts and pants. The design can easily be lengthened if crops aren’t your style, instructions are included in the pattern. This design is simple enough for an adventurous beginner, yet still engaging for advanced knitters. Best of all, the cropped length and sleeveless style make this a super quick and gratifying project. The body length is easily adjustable, keep in mind changes will alter the yardage required.

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT!!

We have a studio!!!

Diana Collins and I have decided that our creativity & production needed a boost in a new space!

Our studio space is located in THE STUDIO at 751 S George Washington Blvd Wichita, KS 67211

Map of 751 George Washington Blvd, Wichita, KS 67211
This is the same building location as the iCT DeSTaSH SaLe.
It is a secured building so you will need to arrange a time to meet with me, a quick text/call should do it, 316.633.3217

Our studio is up on the second floor, 23 stairs up, so keep that in mind.
If need be, we can meet in a downstairs room if mobility is an issue.

We would love to not only use the space for our art/craft, but also to host others in their fiber art journey as well.

Give us a week or so to get our legs (and tables/chairs) under us and then we’ll be available with set hours.

My private and group lesson rates apply.
Group events/classes will be priced per event/class.

Watch for pretty pictures to appear of our space as we build it up!!
