This pattern is part of Shalimarch 2014 event. See all the participating designs, discounts and giveaways in the Shalimarch thread.

Loden is a work of lacy cabled goodness. Knit with minimal ease, the lace will follow the curves of the body for a feminine look. Three-quarter sleeves add a nice touch. The sample is shown in Shalimar Yarns Haven in the “Loden” colorway. The pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters, with basic knowledge of lace and cabling. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
