True Brit Knits Tiggywinkle Pattern

£3.50

Tiggywinkle’s sleeves are knitted flat, the body knitted flat and all in one piece to the armholes and then the sleeves are joined in and the raglans worked. By the time you’ve finished you’ve only got to swap needles for the moss stitch border and then pick up stitches for the front bands and do a tiny bit of seaming on the sleeves. If you’re knitting in advance of Baby’s arrival and don’t know the gender then work buttonholes on both bands, then when you do know the gender and come to sew on buttons it’s easy to close one set of buttonholes up when you sew the buttons on.
Tension: 21 sts and 27 rows to 10cm over stocking stitch on 4mm nds.
Sized to fit: 3(6, 12, 18, 24) months.
Finished size: 50(53, 56, 59, 60)cm / 19¾(21, 22, 23¼, 23½)”.
Yarn: Town End Alpacas 100% Alpaca DK. 3(3, 3, 4, 4)x 50g balls. Shown in Mid Fawn.
3 buttons, approximately 1cm / ⅓” diameter. 3.25mm and 4mm needles, OR the size required to give you the correct tension.
Your preferred needle / latch hook for darning ends in.

Description

Tiggywinkle features our perennial favourite, Blackberry Stitch / Bramble Stitch / Trinity Stitch, call it what you will. We will be totally upfront here, this is not the easiest pattern to knit we’ve ever designed, but then again it’s not the hardest requiring a Phd in Pattern Following. Basically because of the increasing / decreasing with the Blackberry stitch the stitch count changes between pattern rows and this gets a bit tricky when you are near the top of the raglans as we wanted to keep the pattern going for as long as possible. So, we’ve written out the last few rows of each size in full. Even so, if you’re a few stitches off when you get to the neck it really won’t matter one little bit. Seriously. Remember, YOU are the boss of your knitting.

  • Jemima is an unashamedly vintage / old fashioned baby bonnet. Sometimes Jemima looks positively Elizabethan given the chance with a bit of vintage linen and lace. Ideal as a christening bonnet / fancy outfit bonnet or just for everyday if you’re that way inclined.
    The front band for Jemima is worked first, then stitches picked up along one edge and the crown knitted flat onto the band. The ties and i-cord edging are then worked onto the bottom edge of the bonnet.
    Sized to fit: 0-3(3-6, 6-12) months.
    Yarn: Town End Alpacas 100% Alpaca DK . 1 x 50g ball. Shown in Mid Fawn.
