Tessalated cattiefaces adorn the yoke of this sweater, and little cats peek out from above the ribbing on the hem and cuffs. The Cateen Sweater is a chunky, cosy sweater, perfect for for chilly days and cool evenings.

These kits include the pattern, all of the yarn you need to knit your Cateen Sweater and a little surprise package of stitchmarkers.

The pattern is available as a download here.

Which size?

The chest measurement below is for the completed sweater - you'll need to add the ease you want on to your chest measurement. The sweater is designed to be worn with 10cm or so of positive ease, although you can add more for a looser, layerable sweater, or less for a more fitted look.

The smallest size (0 - 6 mos) should be knittable with just one skein of each shade, but you may end up in a nailbiting game of yarn chicken. You can order kits with one skein if you're happy to chance it, or get a second skein if you prefer to play it safe.

Eagle-eared Leonard Cohen fans amongst you may notice that I've taken all of the colourway names from his lovely songs. I had a grand little LC listening-session while I was planning out these colourways.
