We found the perfect pattern for the new American Ewe Sport Base yarn.  Melanie Berg recently released this beautiful cardigan which uses sport weight yarn.  I knew our new Twisted Sport would be a perfect match for this cardigan! It's an easy pattern and we hope you try it!

Please purchase the pattern Desperate Housewife from Melanie Berg here:

Each kit uses 2 skeins for the background colors and 7 different colors for the prominent stripes for a total of 9 skeins (total yardage = 2496).  The kits include enough yarn for sizes up to 53" chest circumference. You will need to add an additional skein of the background color for larger sizes. You can get an additional skein in the background color here:  See pattern for more size details.

Select your color preference from the photo choices.  The background color is the yarn in the lower right hand corner.  Except for choice #7 and #10 which is the yarn in the center of the photo.  You will receive two skeins of the background color and one each of the other colors.  Yarn choice #10 is the one I am knitting the sample in.

The American Ewe Twisted Sport yarn comes in 18 different colors. We have put together several combinations but you can choose your own at this listing:
