Carrying on with the theme of natural colours from yesterdays post we have a new kit to show you today.
Last year Sandra knitted her peerie dog Toby a coat to keep him warm, She used the motif’s from the Rams and Yowes blanket. When Kate saw the coat on her one of her visits to Shetland last year, they chose to release it as a joint pattern between them, A Wolf in Sheeps Clothing is the result!
A Wolf in Sheeps Clothing (Tobys coat) uses all nine shades of Shetland Supreme 2ply Jumper Weight and includes the essential pattern features of the Rams and Yowes by Kate Davies.
This coat is made from the tail upwards, casting on stitches for the belly and using contrast yarn to create and ‘afterthought’ front leg openings to be made later. The body is worked back and forth in stocking stitch. The neck is shaped by decreasing, and a ribbed edging is added all around the sides.
