The pattern is now available to download through my Ravelry shop! Thanks to those who test knit for me- I appreciate your efforts in making this pattern happen!
Cabelina is a flattering, feminine sweater that can be made to suit any season. Options for a short- or 3/4-sleeve version are included, and it has been successfully made in both wooly and cottony yarns. It is designed with negative ease to flatter the bustline, and then flows gracefully into an a-line shape that will swish freely around the hips. Ribbon ties under the bust help define the shape, but may be omitted for a softer shape.
The top is cleverly constructed in join-as-you-go pieces, so you will only have two side seams to sew up at the end.
