Baby Cables and Big Ones Too
Good news! A fitted version of the pattern is now available and added to the pattern files as a separate pdf. Everyone who has previously purchased the pattern via Ravelry will also receive the update.
I won’t delete the original pattern, it will remain to those who prefer a looser fit and a wider selection of languages.
The fitted version includes:
- 5 new sizes, designed to be worn with zero ease
- short row shaping on upper body for more comfortable fit
- little rolled edge on neck
- less stitch markers used
Files are named as follows:
- Fitted version: Fitted_Babycables_301214.pdf
- Original version in English: Babycables_141112_English.pdf
- Original version in Finnish: Babycables_141112_FI.pdf
- Original version in French: Babycables_141112_French.pdf
Please note that the fitted version is only available in English.
The cables are charted in every version.
This beautiful and original garment combines modern vanishing cables and two all time classics, garter stitch and stockinette. It’s beautiful and unusual and never goes out of style.
The sweater is worked seamlessly from top-down and requires minimal finishing.
