Item details

This listing is for a knitting pattern and not a finished item.

Hathor is a pretty cardigan, knitted seamlessly from the top down with a garter slip stitch yoke and seed / moss stitch edgings. There are options for either short or long sleeves.

The body of Hathor has a gentle waist shaping which gives it a more fitted feel and a feminine shape. As Hathor is knitted from the top down, I have given instructions for adjusting this by trying on your cardigan and positioning the waist to suit. It is also easy to adjust the length of the body and sleeves to your own measurements.

Don’t let the fact that the yoke pattern looks complicated put you off. It is very simple to knit and looks like you have taken hours over intricate colour-work. In fact, only one colour is used on any row and the ‘clever’ patterning in achieved by slipping stitches and working in garter stitch which makes the colours travel and mix in a fascinating way.

To knit this cardigan it will help if you have some experience in top down knitting, but this is not essential. For knitting the sleeve edgings and or sleeves, some experience in seamless knitting is helpful. You should also be able to pick up stitches for working the button bands. There are endless tutorials available on the net for all techniques you should need.

Sizes: Available in finished chest sizes 81, 86, 91, 96.5, 101.5, 112 cm (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44 inches) I recommend adding between 2.5 to 5 cm (1 to 2 inches) to your actual chest sizes for ease.

Yarn: You will need a light worsted weight / DK yarn which knits to a tension / gauge of 5.5 sts x 7 rows to 2.5 cm ( 1 inch) in three colours, a main shade and two contrast colours. The sample in the picture above was knitted in Drops Karisma 100% wool in off white, mustard and sage.

Needles: 3.75 mm (US 5) circular needles (or size to give you the above gauge/tension) in 80 or 100 cm (30 or 40 inch) lengths for working the yoke and body and 3.5 mm (US 4) ( or one size smaller than your gauge needle) needles for knitting the sleeves, edgings and button bands. Use whichever needles you prefer for knitting seamlessly in the round ie. one long needle; two shorter needles or a set of dpns.

Notions: 7,(7,7,8,8,8,8) x 2 cm (¾”) dia. Buttons. 2 Stitch Markers.
