Cables are versatile; they can be worked in so many interesting ways: traditionally, with the same number of stitches crossed over; unevenly, with different numbers of stiches crossed over and under, such as one stitch over two stitches. The cardigan and pullover here feature eye-catching uneven cables .More traditional but with a twist, the cowl features even cross over stitches zig zagged and mixed with lace for a pretty effect.
This is collection of three designs that incorporate aran lace—the use of both cables and lace. I love playing with cables, twisting them this way and that way ending up with a variation on your traditional cable. And I love the rhythm of lace knitting and find it fascinating all the beautiful stitch patterns you can make with yarn overs and decreases. Now I have found a new love aran lace, uniting the fun of cables with the beauty of lace.
I loved the cable pattern in Kitra so much I decided to design a cowl and a hat with the same cable pattern. Kitra means “crowned one,” and the beautiful name reflects the crown of cables entwined in this cowl. Now you wear a crown around your neck. It was also designed with Shibui Dune, a mix of baby camel and silk forming a deeply hued yarn that knits into a rich fabric without losing its natural roots. This cowl is royal enough for your special affairs and natural enough for daily use.

Your reward—wonderful pullovers.
The theme for this wonderful collection of three patterns is syncopated cables. Most of us are familiar with the musical meaning of the word syncopated. Another meaning for syncopated is to cut short or contract. The cable sequences in these patterns have sections in which the rows between the cables have been contracted. In other words, there are fewer rows than normal between the cable crosses. Cutting the number of rows between the cables throughout the pattern makes the cables appear to twist and twirl, adding depth and quality to the design. This, along with other structural details, develops a syncopated cable.
