Make The Choice! Giveaway

UPDATE: The pattern will be published on Wednesday, November 9th 🙂 Sorry about the delay, life can get into the way of things sometimes:) Thank you so much for understanding!

Cable Cardigan Pattern

The Choice cable cardigan pattern is ready to be published this Sunday!!! I am so happy about it – I’ve been working on the pattern for 5 months now and it feels so good to put the final touches to it.

Looking at this photo, you probably understand why I called this project The Choice. Basically this is a 2-in-1 pattern that gives you the option to choose to knit either a simple textured back version for a more drapey relaxed look or add some delicious cables for more texture and structure. Fronts are absolutely identical with a squishy simple cable running along a textured neckband. I’ll show you much more photos on the day of publication!

You know how I love modifications and I always wonder how the knit garment would look like if to change this or that. When I was knitting the cable version, I wondered how it would look like without the cables on the back, I put the knitting aside for a couple of days, trying to decide what I really want in the end and then it struck me – why should I choose if I could do both and give a knitter a chance to decide! So, this is how the second version was born.

The Choice is a top-down completely seamless cardigan with the neckband knit simultaneously with the main body, which means – when you are done, you are done!! The pattern is graded for 7 sizes (XS – 3XL), with very detailed step-by-step instructions and lots of photo tutorials. I will post much more details about it on the day of publication, for now let’s get to the exciting part – giveaway!!! Do you remember how much fun we had during our Journey sweater giveaway? So, let’s do it again! By the way, if you would love to knit both of the patterns from my Moeke 2016 collection (Journey and The Choice), it is a good time to get your copy of Journey sweater, as everybody who bought Journey before 6th of November, will get a special introductory discount on The Choice cardigan!

    I love this cardigan. It looks so cozy and warm.
    I like both the textured back and the cable back. I think I’d opt for the cable just because Inlove them to knit and to look at.
