Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl

Pattern Description:

I loved the look of this cable and diamond pattern when I first saw it. I reworked it a bit so that it would grow naturally from the twisted cable ribbing. It's an easy pattern to work, and it doesn't require a cable needle. Knit it in a soft yarn for a lot of drape, or a stiffer yarn for more body.

Gauge:

In Twisted Cable Rib, 28 sts and 28 rows = 4"/10 cm; in Twisted Cable and Diamond pattern, 27 sts and 27 rows = 4"/10 cm.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • XS (29.5") to 5X (67.5")

Materials:

  • Worsted-weight alpaca, 1090-2071 yards
  • One pair size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles
  • one size 7 (4.5 mm) circular needle, 16" long

About the designer

At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
