Put your passion in your fashion!

They provide us with the best fibre known to humankind, so of course knitters love sheep! Declare that love with this stylish pullover, designed for everyday wear in cool climes. With a cleverly scooped circular yoke, and princess line shaping, Tups will flatter all curves and none. It will definitely suit ewe!

Yes, it’s knitted from the top down in the round. Yes, it is seamless. This is a very pleasurable knit!

Tups was knitted with Blacker Swan 4ply, a beautifully soft British wool yarn. Although labelled as 4ply, it is more truly a sportweight, producing a lovely fabric at sportweight gauges. If substituting other brands, we recommend that you choose a sportweight yarn.

The instructed sizes include 2-5cm/1-2” of positive ease. With Blacker Swan 4ply, you will need 8(8:8:9:9:10:10:11:11:11: 12:12:13:13) 50g balls of your main colour, and 1(1:1:1:1:1:1:1:1:1:1:1:2:2) 50g balls of contrast colour.

The tension/gauge given above (25 sts and 36 rounds per 10cm/4”) is for blocked single-colour stocking stitch/stockinette; the tension/gauge for the blocked stranded colourwork is 29 sts and 36 rounds per 10cm/4”.

Errata: Short Row 3 should end ‘k2, sl1 purlwise wyif, turn’.
