Grey Edge

Textured Cable Sweater Knitting Pattern. The Gift Of Knitting.

Happy Sunday! My trip is just one month away and though I have three more projects planned, I was crazy enough to cast on The Edge. It is really interesting how my knitter’s brain works – as soon as I finish a design, I already have ideas what forms and colors it could take. It happened with almost all of my patterns, it is like I cannot get enough of them the first time around and crave to come back to play a little bit more with the design and sometimes this results in additional pattern files I add to the original version:

Reindeer was knit in merino/silk and then recreated in cotton, because I was craving to see the stitch definition the cotton creates.

La Flor took a completely different shape when knit in gorgeous mohair, which resulted in additional pattern file.

The Choice also gives you two options to choose (pun intended 🙂 ) from – cable or simple textured back.

Heritage and Wheat sweaters found their new life in the pattern “cocktail” when both sweaters merged in one.

And now The Edge. I love my dusty pink aran weight sweater that I was wearing all winter, but when planning my trip home, I knew I needed some neutral cozy loose sweater that I’ll throw on with my black joggers and get on this 30+ hour journey. Well, The Edge fit perfectly – I was so craving to come back to these 3D cables that I love knitting so much!

So, of course, I am adding some mods to it, seems like I can never knit something as it is without modifications. The sweater will be lighter, as the yarn is thinner compared to the original one and I am thinking of making it crop length… Well, hopefully it will be ready just in time and keep me cozy during the flight, because I always get so cold in the planes.

Hope you have some nice projects to work on this Sunday!

      Hello Lee! I am using Stockbridge by Valley Yarns (alpaca/wool blend), I had it it my stash for quiet some time and if I am not mistaken it is discontinued.

    Loving all of your modifications, Alina! You know you are a designer when you have to change up your own patterns and try new yarn at the same time 🙂 So fun to see your process! Safe and happy travels to you!
