This tunic-length sweater features a striking twisted-stitch cable panel and set-in sleeves for a sleek and tailored look. The pattern covers ten sizes from a 32” to a 50” bust with a classic style to suit all body shapes. Catkin is worked seamlessly in the round, from the bottom up, and the sleeves are then set in, using short rows, from the top down. Instructions are also included in this pattern booklet for the simple, slouchy Catkin 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.
