  2. An Caitin Beag Simpler Sinister Sweater Knitting Pattern

    An Caitin Beag Simpler Sinister Sweater Knitting Pattern

    £6.00

    Marna of An Caitin Beag has done it again, introducing this really fun DK Cat sweater to her alreayd awesome set of Cat Cardis and socks!

    The Simpler Sinister Sweater is a lovely straightforward knit – a short but effective colourwork section creates a yoke edged with sinsterly glowering cats. It’s designed as a relaxed knit for a cosy winter sweater.

    This sweater is worked in DK-weight yarn. 

    Choosing colours

    A large contrast between the cats and the background will give a bold, dramatic effect, but more subtle colour choices can also be effective. A varigated or speckled yarn can make a fantastic background to the cats.

    Swatching is essential!

    Each pattern comes with a code to download a digital version from Ravelry.

    Variations

    The pattern includes guidance for adapting it to both steeked and flat-knit cardigans.

    Sizes

    The Catdigan pattern comes with instructions for 16 different sizes, from: 44cm / 17.5” to 164cm / 64”. 

    See table below for sizes and yarn requirements.

  3. An Caitin Beag Sinister Catdigan Knitting Pattern

    An Caitin Beag Sinister Catdigan Knitting Pattern

    £6.00

    Marna of An Caitin Beag about stole our hearts with this cardigan pattern!

    Not enough cats in your life? Or on your cardigan? The Sinister Catdigan will solve that problem. Look at all those smug, judgy little faces glaring out at the world, and plotting all sorts of sinister goings-on!

    This cardigan is worked in 4-ply yarn. It works well as a fitted cardigan with little or no positive ease, and also as a more relaxed, looser knit.

    The cardigan is knitted in the round, and steeked.  Swatching is essential!

    Each pattern comes with a code to download a digital version from Ravelry.

    Variations

    You can choose to knit a shaped or straight waist. The pattern includes guidance for converting it to a sweater, and there are also suggestions for adapting it to better fit you.  

    For the sweater: check the fit as the chest measurement will be approx 2cm/ 0.75” tighter than the cardigan version, so you may want to move up a size.

    Sizes

    The Catdigan pattern comes with instructions for 16 different sizes, from: 74cm / 29” to 164cm / 64”.  See product images for a schematic.

    You can choose to knit it as a fitted cardigan with little or no positive ease, or move up a size or two for a more relaxed knit.

    Yarn

    This cardigan is designed to work with a variety of 4ply/ fingering/ sock weight yarns.  This cardigan is steeked, so a wooly, easily felted, non-superwash 100% wool yarn is ideal. Any 4-ply / fingering / sock weight yarn is suitable, as are Shetland jumper-weight yarns.

    If you choose a superwash yarn, a sock yarn containing a little nylon, or a blend that’s not 100% wool you might want stitch the steek with a sewing machine zig-zag stitch or run a second reinforcing line of stitching when you’re reinforcing it. You might also want to catch the floats behind the cats more frequently.

    Yarns with more than 25% non-wool content are a bad choice for this project.

    If you’re unsure whether a yarn will work well for this pattern try making a small colourwork swatch, and cutting a steek in it. Two repeats of the cat-chart, along with the steek stitches, should be enough to give you a good idea.
