Ama Sweater Kit by Cat and Sparrow
N.B. This product is dyed to order and will take up to 14 days to arrive.
To celebrate our Ama Sweater Knit-Along (which has now officially ended but many of us are still going!), Rachael Prest of Cat and Sparrow hand-dyed yarns is dyeing kits especially for our customers. Maddie Harvey's lovely pattern can be purchased here.
Needles required 3.5mm and 4mm circular needles (60cm or 80cm depending on size), also same sizes in your preferred method of knitting small circumferences in the round for the sleeves.
Rachael has chosen a British Wensleydale DK which takes the dye beautifully. She describes it as soft and drapey with a very subtle halo. We have samples in the shop if you want to see this gorgeous yarn in person before committing.
The kit comes in 3 colourway options, each consisting of 2 coordinating colours. There are two sizes of kit: XS to L and XL to 4X. Please check your size using the measurements below.
