The Ama Sweater by Maddie Harvey has been on our to-do list since its release last year, and we're not the only ones! So we've selected it for our first KAL of 2020.
Our Ama Sweater KAL begins on 15th January with a cast-on party 7pm - 9pm in the shop and will run till 15th March. Don't worry if you can't join us in person, we'd still love you to join in!
We have pulled together a few yarn suggestions.
We have hand-dyed kits from 3 of our favourite yarn dyers: Cat and Sparrow, Nellie and Eve and Skein Queen. These kits will come with a free download code for the pattern.
The kits are designed to use a semi-solid for the main colour and variegated contrast colour. However, this design will work beautifully in solid colours.
Our top pick from our commercial yarns would be West Yorkshire Spinners ColourLab DK. The quantities you would need in this yarn:
Sizes XS to L - 3 balls of MC/2 balls of CC Sizes XL to 4X - 4 balls of MC/3 balls of CC
We have plenty of other lovely DK options to suit most budgets in the real shop. The pattern can be purchased via us in the shop or directly from Maddie online (link below).
All the pattern details, including meterage requirements if you are choosing a different yarn, can be found on Maddie's pattern page:
