Inspired by it’s big sister the Pacha Cardigan, the Vida Loca is stitched up in the super simple chevron stitch (that’s just a combo of knit and purl stitches to you and me).

This kit is knitted with Billie Jean Yarn, our upcycled yarn made of pre-consumer denim waste. Please note this yarn will perform like most blue jeans, with the possibility to fade a little during the first wash and with a small amount of colour transfer.
135 meters per 100-gram ball. WPI 11/DK.
Our Billie Jean Yarn is made from pre-consumer denim scraps and offcuts which are ground back into fibres and re-spun into yarn. We don’t use any nasty dye fixers or chemicals in this process, however this does mean some dye may transfer to your needles or hands while you’re stitching.
Hand wash only in cold or lukewarm water - do not exceed 30 degrees / Use a delicates hand wash detergent / Give your knits a gentle squeeze and leave in the water for a few minutes / Once done, roll in a clean towel to remove excess water and then dry flat.
Note: as this product is upcycled denim it will perform as most blue jeans and there is possibility it will fade during the first wash and have a small amount of colour transfer.
