Sweater weather is definitely here! To celebrate I’m offering 40% off select sweaters including this one! No code needed. Promotion runs until January 25, 2019.

Alana combines a center front cable panel and complementary sleeve cables with top-down construction and simple stockinette for casual elegance. Written in 7 sizes with waist and hip shaping for a flattering fit. Cables are charted and written. Named Alana from the Celtic word meaning harmony or stone because the cables evoke both ancient stone carvings and the blending of individual parts into harmony. This sweater was originally published in Knit Now magazine. The rights have released back to me so I’m now free to republish it! I’ve reworked and updated the pattern and formatting!
