I've been creating things since I can remember. I have done all kinds of needlecraft, knitting, crochet, but as a rule I keep coming back to knitting. It is my favorite craft so far. I have created my own patterns since I started knitting as a child. A few years ago I learned how to write them down so I can share them with more knitters. Even though there is a lot of math involved in pattern writing, I enjoy it occasionally. This pattern store is a way for me to share them. Thank you for stopping by.

If you dislike sewing pieces together, this sweater is for you! It is worked in the round, starting at the bottom, and even the sleeves are worked in the round, so only the shoulder seems need to be sewn. The shaping is done by using different stitches, so there is no need for measuring for increasing or decreasing. The main principle of the design is to let the cables shape the sweater, holding it tighter at the waist, then switching to stockinette stitch and a lighter color for the bust. It is an easy and enjoyable project. Please feel free to use your own colors, adding to the uniqueness of your end product. This pattern has been published in Knitcircus magazine.
stockinette st: 16 sts x 21 rows =4" ;
lacy cables: 26 sts x 21 rows = 4"
