    This is quite a simple pattern, good for a novice knitter who wants some detail rather than a plain cardigan - or a seasoned knitter who wants something quick and easy. Mostly in stocking stitch, it features a single pattern of cabling on back, front and sleeves, with a folded collar which is worked along with the front borders. Change the button sides for boys or girls if you wish; and as it’s economical, make a second one in a different colour for your tiny tot. Tomas is pronounced toh-moss, and is the Irish version of Thomas, meaning “twin.”

    Finished garment measurements: Chest: 20 (22, 24)” Length from back of neck to hem: 10 (11, 12)” - adjustable Sleeve from underarm to cuff: 7½ (8½, 10)” - adjustable

    There are five pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs. The garment is knit flat, so only straight needles are required.

    Materials you need at home:

    You will need: * Red Heart Soft Touch, 5 oz (140g), 266m/290 yds. – the smallest size took 4 oz, so depending on your gauge and body/sleeve lengths, you may find one ball will suffice for each size. * Straight knitting needles: 4.5mm (U.K. 7, U.S. 7) and 5mm (U.K. 6, U.S. 8) * Cable needle * 4 or 5 buttons * Yarn needle for sewing up * Markers – I use small safety pins, or tie on contrasting lengths of yarn
