It all started when I tried out this beautiful cable pattern and made a little swatch.
I already had a faint idea of what it should become. Years ago I had made some sketches for a special construction and I want to try it out. This looked like the right project for this mini swatch.
So here it is: a double cable pattern starting at with a provisional cast on at the center of the back neck.
After having worked the cable at a sufficient length, the provisional cast on is unzipped and the other side of the neck is worked.
Then the double cable splits forming the front cable bands and the bands on the sleeves.
Évidemment is an open front cardigan with drop shoulders, a beautiful cable pattern and some special details.
The cardigan has an easy shape and a loose fit, perfect to slip over your shirt on a chilly morning.
Couldn’t waste that cute little swatch. It is sewn on as a mini pocket.
