This fitted cardigan with high?relief cables was inspired by a sweater from the 1940s. The vintage piece, complete with shoulder pads, could have adorned Joan Crawford or any of her film rivals. The updated look is worked in a hand?painted alpaca/wool blend and accented with asymmetric buttons.

Aunt Frances (my grandmother's sister) taught me to knit when I was 5 years old. I've been knitting ever since. I challenged myself a few years ago by venturing into designing & writing patterns. Be careful what you wish for - you might just get it. My first book, Bargello Knits, is scheduled for release in February 2013 through Cooperative Press (www.cooperativepress.com).
