Knitting A Cable Knit Sweater: How To
We’re knitting a cosy, cable knit sweater for you this week.
Instructions come for eight sizes ranging from 81 cm (32 ins) to 117 cm (46 ins).
Actual size is around 15 cm (6 ins) bigger giving you a comfortable fit.
Our sweater features Rico Design Soft Merino Aran in shade Dusky Pink (14). This yarn is 100% Merino wool and is machine washable. As the name suggests, it is soft to the touch to the touch. It gives excellent definition to cables and patterns.
It is readily available or you can order direct, and view alternative shades, at www.blacksheepwools.com.
The cable and rib pattern is worked front and back over 30 stitches and 12 rows using basic cable stitches. A rib pattern features throughout on the sleeves.
We have graded this as an intermediate design.
If you would like an eye-catching, cosy sweater, this will surely fit the bill.
