I knit the City Limits sweater by Tanis Lavallee using two fingering weight strands held double. The main colour throughout is Silver Grey on Basic Sock, and I changed the second strand colour every 4-5 inches using my six Broken Rainbow colours.
Want to knit a City Limits sweater just like mine?First you will need to get the pattern. Next you will purchase a yarn kit which includes all six Broken Rainbow colours from my Body Positivity yarn collection and Silver Grey on basic sock.
Depending on the size you knit you will receive either 25-gram minis, 50-gram minis or 115-gram full skeins on Basic Sock, plus between 1-4 full skeins of silver grey on Basic Sock.
