PATTERN DETAILS

Troian (pronounced troy-an) is a sexy but sophisticated cardigan featuring cables, stockinette, and simple rib details. The cuffed, elbow length sleeves draw the eye up and to the textured front and fun snap and toggle closures placed from the collar to just below the bust. This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down using set-in sleeve construction. The yoke and bodice are knit first to the bottom hem. Stitches are then picked up around the armholes for the sleeves, which are initially shaped by using short rows and then worked seamlessly in the round from the top down. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit in-the-round Cabling Pick up and knit GAUGE 20 stitches and 28 rows = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch, using larger needles Change needle size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

I'm a twenty-something Pacific North westerner living in Olympia, Washington. I first learned to knit in the Fall of 2005 and after much self-teaching and practice, began designing my own patterns in early 2010. I know I'm not alone when I say I can't imagine life without my knitting! :)
