Cable Textured Sweater. The Gift Of Knitting for We Are Knitters

It’s been a busy time here on the blog – I am finally finishing all the projects I have been working on at the end of 2017 and happy to present them to you. Today I am sharing my new sweater design which will be released this Sunday – The Edge Sweater.


The journey of this sweater started one year ago. I was swatching for one of my new designs and desperately wanted to include extra cozy voluminous cables that would really pop out against the stockinette stitch background, but nothing quiet worked the way I imagined it should. But after browsing through endless cable variations, I’ve found a very interesting interpretation of the classic cable – created with extra rows of fabric inside the cable, it produced the extra volume effect I was looking for. For that particular design I was working on at that time, it didn’t quiet work, but I made a note for myself to come back to it as soon as the “right” yarn comes along. The moment I touched The Petite Wool – I knew that was it!!!

The original stitch wasn’t 100% satisfactory for me, so I played with it for several weeks until I modified it the way that suited the yarn, the design and the general look of the sweater that I had in my head. And the rest is history – after months and months of planning I finally cast on and… finished the sweater in 7 afternoons!!! This is my personal record! But I just couldn’t put it down and all the planning definitely payed off – I didn’t have to rip off any part!

One of the main points of interest of this design are 3D cables – slightly different from the traditional cable technique, this method produces extra volume that really stands up against the stockinette stitch background. That was really important for me – I wanted to keep the rest of the sweater simple and plain, and the classic cables do not pop up that much when placed next to the stockinette stitch fabric.

Halfway through the sweater I had another idea – what if I add elbow patches on the sleeves that will mirror the center textured stitch?! Well, here they are and I am in love with them!!! It adds a slightly vintage feel to the sweater…

    Oh what a lovely sweater! It looks very much as if I would be able to knit it to the finishing stitch (before Christmas even!) and be so proud to wear it.

    Love the color and the design especially the high relief of the cables. Usually not a fan of elbow patches but in this case the detail is really appealing. Rav ID florestine
