Truly Myrle Pattern Leaflet - Kate

New Zealand’s women were the first in the world to get the right to vote in 1893, and Kate Sheppard was the strong, determined leader of the women’s suffrage movement.

History is littered with incredible women who fought for change in turbulent times and many of them made their courageous stand for equality from within the confines of domesticity.

My Kate cardigan is an attempt to reflect some of those amazing women.

Kate is a top-down fingering-weight cardigan with set-in short-row sleeves and a strong, angular panel down each side of the front.

The rolled button band is knitted on at the end and is unexpected, going against the garter-stitch grain, and the 1x1 rib at the hem and cuffs is a nod to fashions from the mid 20th century, when women all over the world worked hard to ensure that later generations had choice and freedom.

The neat i-cord at the neck gives Kate an elegant finish.

Kate is a perfect knit for intermediate knitters and beginners looking for an adventure.

This pattern can also be found in issue 4 of Laine Magazine. (Shown in size M from the original sizes XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL) in the magazine)

New sizes have been added for the individual PDF .
