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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, basic cable GAUGE stockinette st: 16 sts x 21 rows =4" ; lacy cables: 26 sts x 21 rows = 4" COLORWAY Bordeaux (main) and Natural (contrasting)

I have created my own patterns since I started knitting as a child. I'm not sure I can even say that, everything I made was mostly improvised. It was easier for me do that than trying to follow a design. Other knitters inspire me though. I love lots of patterns. I only use them as a starting point, to create my own. Though some of my patterns have been published in Knitcircus Magazine a few years ago, I am still only a weekend knitter. However, I try to write down some of my patterns. I also like to share them, it's nice to see others knit something based on my patterns. Sometimes I blog about my knitting projects at www.ré
