Fall Cables Cardigan


Knit Simple magazine gave their Fall cover sweater a very unimaginative name--Woman's Cardigan. It is such a beautiful cabled sweater that I am going to call it the Fall Cables Cardigan. I am even using a fall color. It is called Persimmon and is kind of a burnt orange color.

I have the first sleeve almost finished and I started the back. The sleeve is knit in the round. I was going to try to make the body all in one piece too but my brain just couldn't wrap around how to do the all-over cables with shaping at the side seams.

There are 9 cables across the back alone. I think by the time I cross that many cables every 8th row I will have gone a little mad anyway.

Really beautiful. I love the yarn you've chosen. I want to make that sweater if I ever get the sheep done. :)

I may just have to be content enjoying yours!
