The Catkin booklet — including both patterns for sweater and hat — is available for £4.95
This tunic-length sweater features a striking cable panel and set-in sleeves for a sleek and tailored look. The design is intended to provide a simple, wearable showcase for baa ram ewe’s beautiful “Titus” yarn, a unique blend of Yorkshire fibres that is not only soft and luxurious but well-spun and hard-wearing. The sweater covers ten sizes from a 32” to a 50” bust with a classic style to suit all body shapes. Instructions are also included for an accompanying hat, which will knit up quickly over the course of an evening or two, and will allow you to test your gauge and to familarise yourself with the cable pattern before embarking on the sweater.
