This pattern is inspired by my sister-in-law’s Irish dancing outfits. I love Irish knots.
Emme’s cable is knit top-down raglan style, with the sleeves knit in the round, with buttons down the side rather than the middle. The pattern is written out and is appropriate for moderately experienced knitters. This sweater looks great on either a boy or a girl and can be easily modified for short sleeves.
I would like to thank all my test knitters who helped me work out some small errors in the pattern and gave me such helpful feedback! Your hard work is truly appreciated!
