My sweater of never-ending cables is done, but it’s too hot to try for a modeled shot right now. So Brown Betty will have to show it off for you instead. But trust me, it fits well, and I love it.
This is my second sweater from the same pattern, but I made this one in a larger size.
Despite the heaving cabling, it isn’t really a difficult pattern. The body is knit in the round to the armholes, and once you get going with the pattern, you don’t need the chart – just a row counter.
I really like the Louet Gems for sweaters – it softens up and blooms beautifully in the wash. It’s comfortable to wear, has nice drape, and is reasonably priced for merino.
Pattern: Shauna, by Trudy Van Stralen
