Soldotna Crop by Caitlin Hunter

August 23, 2022

Caitlin Hunter is well known for her amazing colourwork designs and, when Soldotna Crop was released in 2019, it was an instant hit.  Since then, the Soldotna Crop appears regularly in the 'Hot Right Now' patterns on Ravelry. Many people have knit this design (including me!) and intend on knitting again (ditto!).

The most appealing thing about this pattern is the speed in which it knits up.  It is a cropped top which obviously helps, but apart from that the colourwork is easy and intuitive and it becomes rather addictive seeing the colours knit up to form the colourwork motifs.  The yardage required is also very appealing; you don't need many skeins to knit this cute crop top!

The Soldotna Crop is perfect for our Cushy DK.  We have just topped up the shop with lots of colours, and have curated a few colour combinations for this fabulous design.  Here they are:
