A set of 3 skeins of Comfy Merino for a Midnight Slayer by Julie Knits in Paris.
The kit includes:

- Martin's Lab printed cotton project bag,
- sachet of no rinse wool wash.
THE KIT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE PATTERN!
The pattern can be bought on Ravelry click here.
From Ravelry pattern page:
Midnight Slayer is a mantlet that could feature both in Interview with the Vampire and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The collar detail screams teenage witch while the lace border and picot edging would be spot on in a good old vampire movie.
Cabled slipped stitches divide the garment into 12 segments so you can work your magic when midnight strikes. No doubt you will slay!
This shawl-cloak-sleeveless cardigan is worked flat from the top down.
It can be fastened with a pin or brooch: find a vintage treasure or treat yourself to a bespoke piece from Mahliqa!
Charts and full written directions are both available for lace sections.

We recommend reading about yarn care before washing and working with the yarn. Although every effort is made to exhaust the dye bath of color you may find a little color bleed on the first washes.
I try to depict the true color of yarn but please remember each monitor will be different. If you have any questions regarding the color, feel free to drop me an email.
