koigu's kersti

Since Kersti first arrived, it's become a favorite sweater yarn. Right now, every member of the Loop staff is knitting themselves a sweater in Kersti. The merino crepe construction is soft and cushy; you can't help but give it a little squeeze when you pick it up.

Kersti knits up nicely at 5.5 stitches to the inch. It's not a fast knit, but you won't want to do this quickly because it feels so good to knit. When you're done, you'll be rewarded with a great three-seasons sweater.

To top it all off, there's the colors.

Warm, uplifting reds and oranges,

cool and comforting blues,

the whole spectrum is represented.

And while we love it for sweaters, Kersti is wonderful for all your knitting needs from hats and mittens to scarves and blankets. Try Kersti for your next project and you just might have a new favorite too!
