Rattlesnake Sweater

September 21, 2020

Woman wearing hand knitted hat, cowl, sweater and wristwarmers

Another fabulous sweater by Knitosophy. You can purchase the pattern through Ravelry or on her website.

Knitted from the top down, there are eight rows of 3 colour knitting, but the rest is 2 colour. I really love the texture added to the cactus. I was so excited when I saw this design, perfect for the Cowboy lover I am. 

This was knitted in Naturally dyed soft DK pure merino as follows:

Main Colour: PrairieCanyon, CC1 (cactus) Florest, CC2: GrandCanyon, CC3: Scrumpkin

If you'd like to make one too, check your size below to find out how many CakeQuarters to purchase. Designed to fit with 2-4" / 5-10cm of positive ease - I always recommend you measure a top you like the fit of and select the size closest to that.

BuckingHorse would also be a beautiful option for the Main Colour. If you would like to see some options photographed together, contact me here

Please check the quantities required in the pattern compared to the CakeQuarter quantity to make sure you are happy with that amount too.
