This waterfall cardigan features a reversible cable pattern in the front panels, which allows for multiple ways to wear the finished garment. It uses a sideways construction, knitted in two pieces starting with the cuffs.
The sample is shown in a lace-weight yarn, but this design could also work well in a light fingering weight yarn.

I?m a slightly obsessed knitter (and musician) hailing from Orkney, Scotland, and currently living in Edinburgh. I?ve been designing and self-publishing my own hand-knitting patterns for a few years now. I love organic forms in knitting, and I?m particularly drawn to textured knitting, like lace, cables and twisted stitches.
