We have made a number of kits and if those don't suit you we also have a number of suggestions for a heavy fingering - sport weight yarn here.

Pattern Notes:

Plum sweater is knitted top-down using Magic Loop method. Make sure that you check your gauge carefully: the size of the sweater will be influenced by it. In addition, when you cast on, it is recommended to use a very tight cast on because the neck line is very wide and you need to prevent it becoming too elastic and getting even wider. Plum is a reversible sweater – you can choose to wear it with the V-neck or with the straight neck in front.
