Rail Yard is a curvy cardigan that’s warm and cozy in Lorna’s Laces Cloudgate! This multi-plied yarn has fantastic stitch definition, so it’s perfect for texture and cable patterns. I’ve always wanted to use this chain link cable from Barbara Walker’s A Fourth Treasury of Knitting Patterns, and this was the perfect opportunity. The body incorporates double moss stitch panels at the center front and back, and the cable twists alternate around the body for pleasing symmetry. Lots of waist shaping at the sides and back show off your waist (or create the look of one)!
