We fell in love with Dovestone Chunky when we were at Baa Ram Ewe HQ earlier this year and when we saw the pattern for the Clem Sweater we knew we had found the shop Winter Uniform.
As the sweater is quite an investment, in that it requires both the book and 9 balls of Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone Chunky, we are delighted to be offering it as a pre-order only option on the site so that we can include a discount in the pricing. The kit contains the 9 balls of Dovestone Chunky required and a copy of Learn to Knit at Home by Alison Moreton, which contains 14 gorgeous, cosy patterns for you and your home.
Pre-orders are now open from Wednesday August 9th to Sunday August 20th, with orders being posted on Thursday August 24th. We will also have our Clem Sweater with us at The Pop Up Wool Show in August, The Handmade Fair in September and The Knitting and Stitching Show, London where we will also be taking pre-orders.
Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone Chunky is a gorgeously soft 100% British Wool yarn. Combining 50% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Wensleydale Longwool and 25% Masham, this is the latest member of the Dovestone yarn family.
The Clem Sweater is a single size sweater to be worn with plenty of ease. The Baa Ram Ewe team tested it out and it fit everyone from 32" to 50". The finished size is 55" bust. The body is knit as two large squares, without shaping, and then seamed together. The sleeves are then knit flat and added, making it a very straightforward knit for beginners.
6.5mm needles are also required but not included in the kit.
