New Pattern; Camden Twist Cardigan

Introducing Camden Twist Cardigan! It is written in 6 sizes from 0-3 months to 2 years. It is sized with approximately 2.5 - 5 cm positive ease. It is worked from the top down, with raglan shaping. It features a simple cable design along the front & back of the cardigan. The button & button hole bands are knitted on after. 

The pattern is shown in Townhouse Yarns Camden Tweed in 'Too Rouge' colour way, in the 2 year size. I really enjoyed using this yarn. It is surprisingly soft & springy to knit (compared with how it feels in the skein). The 'Too Rouge' colour way has a wonderful depth & strength of colour typical of Townhouse Yarns.


Sizes: 0-3, 3-6, 6-12, 12-18, 18-24 months, 2 years.
Yarn requirements: approximately (100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150)g 4 ply / fingering weight yarn.
Gauge: 28 st per 10 cm / 4'' in stocking stitch


Materials: 2.5 mm needle or size needed to achieve gauge. The pattern can be knit with a long circular needle - using magic loop for the sleeves - or with a combination of straight needles for the body & DPNs for the sleeves. 
Small cable needle or DPN for working cable. 
Darning Needle
Optional sewing needle & thread for adding buttons. 
(6, 6, 7, 8, 8, 9) small buttons, approximately 1cm diameter, or as many as you wish. 
Stitch markers
The pattern is available to download for free here:
