Cosy ca­bled cardi­gan

The Knitter - - Contents - Kephren Pritch­ett

“CO­COON YOUR­SELF in this over­sized cardi­gan; the ideal throw-on so you can take your cof­fee break al fresco,” says de­signer Kephren Pritch­ett. “It has a splen­did large cable de­tail worked all the way down the back, and a rolled rib neck­line to keep you warm.” Her cardi­gan is knit­ted in Wool­folk Får, a gor­geous yarn us­ing Patag­o­nian merino that’s spun and dyed in Peru.

PAT­TERN NOTES

This cardi­gan is worked mostly in a mod­u­lar fash­ion. First the back cable panel is worked from the bot­tom up. The sides are worked by pick­ing up stitches from the sides of the cable panel and work­ing out­ward to­ward the sleeve cuffs. Stitches for the ribbed lower edg­ing are picked up from the body and worked down­ward. Stitches for the col­lar are worked from held cable panel stitches and picked up from the body, then worked out­ward. Cir­cu­lar nee­dles are used to ac­com­mo­date the large num­ber of stitches.
