The Perfect Fit Seamless Crazy Lace Cardigan »
InstructionsAs Myra explained how to add lace to a project, the same approach can be used to add cables. Cables tend to decrease the width of the fabric, they could be used for accentuated waist shaping.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Classic, Outdoorsy
Hand spun alpaca and some commercial alpaca
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to have a touch of fair isle around the yoke but didn't want to follow a detailed color chart. Also wanted some visual detail that continued down the back after the color changes ended; thus,the cables.
What are you most proud of?
Getting the button band to fit properly with the buttons. So many times, sweaters are too large around the neck and constantly slip. This pattern helps eliminate that struggle.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If I were to do this again, I would use the lighter color around the yoke and have the darker color along the sleeves and around the body.
