’RAVEN’ is one of two designs I have created using The Little Grey Sheep’s Gotland 4 ply yarn and is one of my first designs not using Rowan yarn! It has been such a pleasure designing with this lovely 4ply yarn as it is beautifully soft and a dream to knit with. This design is a fitted shape and will equally look good with a tweed skirt or a pair of jeans.

It is a good first stranded garment to knit if you are new to stranded knitting as it is worked entirely in the round and therefore knitted constantly on the right side.

PATTERN NOTE: The yarn quantities quoted in the pattern are for 100g hanks for DARK CLOUDS OVERHEAD only and 20g hanks for all the other colours. If you want to buy 100g hanks in all the colours then you will need to buy 1 hank for all the colours except the DARK CLOUDS OVERHEAD.

I hope you will enjoy knitting and wearing this design.
