Testing Call - Black Sheep Sweater
This is a form to test the new size range on an old favorite - Princess Diana's Black Sheep Sweater pattern. We have graded the original pattern released by Muir and Osborne knitwear.

This design originally appeared in McCall's Magazine in 1984. In 2011, the designers Joanna Osborne and Sally Muir donated the pattern and encouraged people to donate their pennies per hour of pleasure (p/hop)  to support Doctors without Borders/Médécins sans Frontiéres.

You can access the original pattern as well as a streamlined PDF by Clare Devine of Yarn and Pointy Sticks and Bronagh Miskelly of La Purple Penguin. Link here: http://www.p-hop.co.uk/index.php/patterns/sweaters-and-jumpers/sheep-sweater/ 

We have taken this pattern, graded it to an inclusive size set as well as made some adjustments for a modern knitting audience.

Sizing: 32 (36, 38, 40, 44, 46, 50) {52, 56, 58, 62, 64)”
