  • 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.

  • 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)”.

  • The Walker Cardigan is more feminine than the Blackett Cardigan, a classic, slightly lacy cardi in moss st and a leafy lace with a few bobbles thrown in on the sleeves. We like to think that the Walker girls would have been dressed in similar cardis when they were dreaming of being explorers in the Lakes aboard the Swallow. The bobbles are very easy, as is the leafy lace pattern on the fronts and the sleeves.
