Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

"Rawrr" was on of my daughter's first words. This sweater was inspired by my daughter's love of tigers; I wanted to design something that was real enough for pretend, but practical enough for everyday. You can buy the pattern individually, or as part of the Imagination Collection.

Rawwr is knit seamlessly with raglan yoke shaping. Intarsia stripes make a simple pullover into a fun and friendly tiger. The colorwork is charted.

The hood is picked up and knit, with short row shaping so it won't fall off. Extra height in the hood is taken in by the ribbing to create poofy cheeks. The buttonband is knit on as you go. The ears are picked up and knit at the end.
