So you’re a crazy cat lady--crazy enough that you’ve collected novelty cat buttons, at least. But you want to look good, right? Enter Cables n’ Cats! Flaunt your figure with the attention-getting cable details and waist shaping, then turn around for a surprise button placket in the back to show off those cherished cat buttons. (Oh yeah…they’re also on the cuffs.) Knit in cozy, snuggly, cat favorite Ultra Alpaca Light, your furry friends won’t be able to keep their paws off you!

Cables n’ Cats is knit in the round from the bottom up until the armholes, then set aside as sleeves are worked separately in the round. Sleeves and body are then joined together to work the yoke in the round. Once the button placket is reached, the remainder of the yoke is worked flat.
