This sweet little sweater features bold cables that are easy to memorize and knit. A quick and rewarding project.

I blogged about it here.

The pattern gauge seems too loose for a fingering weight yarn--maybe the sample was knit with a loftier fiber?--so I’ve gone with a tighter gauge and knitted a couple sizes up. If I were to knit to pattern gauge, I’d use sport weight yarn.

The buttons look weird in these pics because they’re reflecting the light. In real life, they blend nicely.

Changed the neck band and bottom band to seed stitch, as I am not a fan of garter stitch. Worked a ribbed cast on and bind off to accommodate the seed stitch.

Worked Row 2 of cable pattern as 2(C4B) instead of 2(C4F). I like the flow of cables better this way.

If I make this again, I’ll change the raglan increases to paired directional increases instead of kfb next to kfb. This is just me being picky--it’s fine the way it’s written.
