Please note that Ketch is available as a custom-gauge, custom-size pattern via my CustomFit custom pattern generator. Upon purchase, you’ll receive a credit for a custom version of Ketch and instructions on how to create it.
Ketch is one of my “CustomFit Basics” line – a collection of super-classic, super-basic sweaters, with simple trims and details. They’re designed to work with just about any yarn you can find, and for just about anyone you’d like to knit for – men, women, and children. Ketch is the quintessential shawl-collared cardigan, with thick 2×2 ribbed trim and a generous neckline.
Shawl collars are cozy to wear – and worked in simple 2×2 ribbed trim, couldn’t be easier to knit. Ketch’s classic lines will drop this cardigan into heavy wardrobe rotation.
Ketch is available as a custom-gauge, custom-size pattern for the yarn and measurements of your choice via CustomFit. It’s shown here on Jackie in an “hourglass relaxed fit” with an hourglass silhouette, but (like all Basics) Ketch is available in a-line, straight, and tapered silhouettes as well. It makes a great choice for men and children, in addition to women.
Your own customized version of the Ketch pattern will be written to your gauge, whatever it may be. This design works well at any gauge.
I used Lorna’s Laces Masham for this sample, in the color “Dobson”. I love Masham for its beautiful marled look, warm and cozy hand, and quick-to-knit gauge. I like it at a gauge of 4.5 stitches to the inch.
To make a standard-size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)’’ / 76 (81.5, 86.5, 91.5, 96.5, 101.5, 106.5, 112, 122, 132, 142, 152.5) cm sweater, you’ll need approximately 5 (5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 9) hanks of Masham for this garment.
Ketch is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed, with set-in sleeves.
