TRIED & TESTED

The Knitter - - Meet The Sheep -

Spun as a DK weight, the Castlemilk Moorit yarn from Dodg­son Farm is sold as two dif­fer­ent blends. When blended with Blue­faced Leices­ter wool, it pro­duces a slightly paler yarn with a light halo, whereas the Che­viot blend is a touch darker and has sharper stitch def­i­ni­tion. Both yarns are a joy to knit; soft, bouncy and smooth, with a sturdy fin­ish that holds its shape. Stock­ing stitch, garter stitch and ca­bles look equally good, mak­ing the yarn per­fect for cosy ac­ces­sories such as hats, mitts, cowls and scarves, or comfy cardi­gans and sweaters. Sug­gested pat­terns to try in this yarn: ‘Otter Cove’ cardi­gan from Is­sue 107 of The Knit­ter; ‘Norder­ney’ jumper from Is­sue 106; ‘Caradoc’ men’s sweater from Is­sue 89; or the ‘Her­ring Girl Wrap’ from Is­sue 55.
