Selecting the correct amount of ease is very personal. Please choose a size based on your own preferences. As always, it is important to manage gauge to ensure you will have enough yarn. If you are worried you can purchase an extra skein of the main color! Please remember that every effort is taken to represent the true colors of the yarn and that monitor settings will vary.
If you purchase the book with your yarn set, we are happy to include the downloadable PDF version, so that you can enlarge the charts without having to spoil the printed book. We will email the code upon request and after your order is processed!
Photo includes a selection of Marie Wallin’s British Breeds. It may not be the exact balls included in your kit. Your kit will include all yarn needed for your size selection.
From the Westmorland book: "Blencathra is named after one of the most northerly hills in the Lake District. It is also one of the most iconic because of it’s shape. Often referred to as Saddleback, it is one of Cumbria’s most renowned peaks."
