Jackson Creek Cardigan
In Peterborough, Ontario, one of my favourite knitting towns, the Jackson Creek trail is one of the recreational trails that runs from the heart of the downtown out through the quiet parks, marshes, and rural routes surrounding the city. It’s the place to be when spring arrives and the snow melts!
Keep the cable love going all year long with this comfortable cardi! Featuring a scoop-neck, ¾ sleeves, and mirrored cable panels at the inside of the fronts with comfy stockinette stitch on sleeves and back. Worked in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. Choose your favourite colour of Tanis Fiber Arts DK, or your preferred DK-weight wool or wool blend at 5.5 sts/inch.
This pattern uses CHARTS for the cable patterns.
