This information applies to the main cabled sweater part of this pattern. The pattern contains instructions for both the lace oversweater and the main sweater

Nymphadora Tonks’s ability to change her appearance at will inspired this sweater that can be styled for a quiet evening in, an afternoon of shopping, or a night on the town.

A close-fitting tunic with an asymmetric neckline in a bulky-weight yarn is covered in wide, soft cables that evoke rippling fluidity. It is designed to be worn with about two inches of negative ease.

A coordinating laceweight oversweater can be added or removed to change the look. The oversweater is sleeveless and oversized widthwise, with a generous cowl neck, and is worked in an airy lace pattern. It can be worn with the main sweater or over a tank in warmer weather.

Please note that the lace has a tendency to grow widthwise when stored flat, but will return to its proper blocked measurements after being hung or worn for a few minutes.

Blocking is key to both sweaters fitting properly.
