Wetwang is part of the Born & Bred collection, a book made in partnership with baa ram ewe, the awesome Yorkshire yarn shop taking Yorkshire wool to the world! The book is available in print from baa ram ewe.

Featuring an innovative combination of a circular yoke with set-in sleeves, Wetwang is a very special garment. You can learn more about the unique construction here.

Wetwang is knitted in the round from the top down, with short rows below the colourwork to scoop the front neck. The scoop is increasingly more exaggerated through the sizes.

The yoke is circular until after the colourwork, when it switches to a simultaneous set-in sleeve construction.

The pattern is available in both A4 and Letter size formats, and all instructions include both US and UK knitting terminology. The pattern includes a full schematic showing metric and imperial measurements.

Believe it or not, Wetwang is a picturesque Yorkshire village. The village pond is home to some black swans, after which the local pub is named. Yorkshire folk are rather fond of Wetwang, while foreigners are rather amused by it. ;o)

There is a formatting error in the instructions for the hip increases. Please ignore the rogue underscore and parentheses - the instruction should simply read ‘until you have worked 8 increase rounds in total’.
