I designed this cardigan because I wanted to try to make cable motifs. Since I didn't want to overwhelm myself, I just added cable motifs in the neck, sleeve and waist, just enough to accentuate this cardigan.
I love the result and I always like the versatility of cardigans. I can always wear a good cardigan when I go out at night or out shopping in a fully airconditioner departmental store.
Sizes: See measurement table. The sizing of the sweater is easy to customize. I’ve included sizing guidelines, but keep in mind that you can control the size. I also included tips how to make it fit to your own measurement. Since this is knitted from top down, you can try it as you go!
