I designed this cardigan because I wanted to try to make cable motifs. Since I didn’t want to overwhelm myself, I just added cable motifs in the neck, sleeve and waist, just enough to accentuate this cardigan.

I love the result and I always like the versatility of cardigans. I can always wear a good cardigan when I go out at night or out shopping in a fully airconditioner departmental store.

The entire pattern is working flat, only the sleeves are working in around, from the top down, and in one piece, so there’s no seaming. Pattern is available in sport weight and DK weight.
