Zitron Ecco, 100% Merino, 111m/50g, 4.0mm (US size 6) needles, cable needle, zipper
What was your inspiration?
My initial idea had been for a fitted cardigan with leaves and cables forming the curves, increases and decreases. After a lot of swatching I actually settled on braids instead of leaves as they matched my first sketches the best.
What are you most proud of?
I love how the cables flow around the curves. It's both very flattering and comfy. And I'm really proud because this has been a challenge to calculate and grade ;)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
As this is knit in one piece from the bottom up you can easily check on the fit while knitting.
