True Brit Knits Nutkin Pattern

£3.50

Squirrel Nutkin was quite a naughty boy, and so this Nutkin is for boys who are hopefully better behaved… Carrying on with the vintage-y feel, there are mock cables (of a sort) and a 50s-esq feel to this little cardi with its striped yoke. We love the look of all these colours together (and the leftovers would make a Jeremy Cap) but you could knit Nutkin in one or two colours only and it would still look good.
Knitted flat, you’ve got minimal seaming on the sleeves and then just a few ends to darn in. There are no real cables at all, just clever stitches that give a lovely textured feel to this little cardi.
The sizes are generous but not over-sized, giving room for growth without a ridiculous amount of ease. If you want something closer / larger fitting then just pick your chest size and alter the length to suit.
Tension: 22 sts and 30 rows in mock cable pattern on 4mm needles.
Sized to fit: 3(6, 12, 18, 24) months.
Finished sizes: 49.5(53, 57, 59, 61)cm, 19¾(20¾, 21½, 23½, 24½)”.
Yarn: Town End Alpacas 100% Alpaca DK.
2(3, 3, 3, 3) x 50g balls MC.
1(1, 1, 1, 1) x 50g ball CC1.
1(1, 1, 1, 1) x 50g ball CC2.
1(1, 1, 1, 1) x 50g ball CC3.
Shown in MC – Ivory, CC1 – Dark Fawn, CC2 – Mid Fawn, CC3 – Pewter.
7 buttons, approximately 1cm / ⅓” in diameter.
3.25mm, 3.75mm and 4mm needles OR the size required to give you the correct tension.
Your preferred needle / latch hook for darning ends in.

  • Based on our rather dashing Sca Fell Peak hat we give you Jeremy, a super-cute peaked cap for babies and toddlers. In these colours Jeremy is rather masculine, but you could make a lovely girly Jeremy in Ivory with a pink and cream pompom or with a pink bow instead.

    Tension: 21 sts and 27 rows to 10cm over stocking stitch in the round on 4mm needles.
    Tension for band: 18 sts and 36 rows to 10cm over garter st in the round on 4.5mm nds with yarn held double.
    Finished size: 33(37, 41.5)cm / 12½(14½, 16⅓)”.
    Yarn: Town End Pure Natural DK Alpaca, or Thames Alpaca Blend DK.
    Single colour hat: 1 x 50g ball. 4-colour hat: 1 x 50g ball of each colour, shown in Dark Fawn, Ivory, Light Mid Fawn and Pewter.
    4mm and 4.5mm dpns / circular needles, OR the size required to give you the correct tension. It might be easier to knit the Peak on straights or circs, but the rest of the hat is entirely up to your preference for knitting small diameters in the round.
    Your preferred needle / latch hook for darning ends in.
