I absolutely love when King Cole combine their flecky or self patterning yarn with the solid colour equivalent - it adds pizazz to a garment and just makes it look so funky. They've added round and v neck, long sleeve and short sleeve options, and even a hat to top it all off. With raglan sleeve shaping, what more could you want?
We're going to recommend King Cole Cherish and Cherish Dash DK, gorgeous self striping yarns with a super soft texture. For the button band/collar/cuffs, the Cherished DK is the solid version of the previously-mentioned yarns and will go super well with them.
