It's no secret that we love a pattern and yarn bundle here at TLYC HQ! This Catdigan Pattern and yarn bundle combines the gorgeous Catdigan pattern from Marna of An Caitin Beag and West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply, in which Michelle knit the TLYC sample (sweater version).
To create your bundle, select a colour for each of Main Colour, Contrast Colour 1 and Contrast Colour 2. Then enter the number of balls required for each colour based on the yarn requirements detailed below. Our sample (sweater photographed) is knit in Poppyseed (MC), Blackcurrant Bomb (CC1) & Marshmallow (CC2).

About the yarn: West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply is a workhorse 4 ply yarn, in a mixture of 75% wool (includes 35% BFL) and 25% nylon. We love it for garments as it is robust and affordable. As Signature 4 ply contains nylon, when securing the steek 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. Steeking is not required in the jumper version. See yarn label for care instructions.
