Check Cable Cardigan

I have finally completed my design and have sold it to the Norwegian magazine Familien/The Family, where it will be published in issue no 26, on sale from of December. My husband has photographed me wearing it, here, so as you can imagine I cannot wait to see it worn by a professional model and photographed by a professional photographer. The pattern will be released after a year and I will then make it available for sale as a downloadable pdf in Norwegian and English on my pattern page and on Ravelry. Here are photographs of the swatch, see my post: new-design-soon-finished

The Check Cable Cardigan is knitted in a simple yet decorative stitch pattern which is reversible combined with a wide collar in a ribbed cable pattern. It has a generous fit and designed to make you feel comfortable yet smart. The cardigan is knitted in Dale Yarns’ Lerke a mixture of wool and cotton with an optimal stitch definition on needle no 4 mm/US 6.

I have knitted two different belts to go with it. The first version, seemed like a brilliant idea at the time using the reversible cable pattern but it does not look as sophisticated as I wanted it to look so the second version is in stockinette stitch knitted sideways and together like a hem. I also tested out a few more versions in between: a 1 by 1 rib which looked way too uneven and I-cord which looked floppy. Hence I preferred to use my favourite hem edging as belt and added a folding row where I knit on the wrong side. The magazine has kept both to test out on the photo shoot, while the first version is in these photograph. I will publish the professional photos when they are available.

  1. This looks great! The stitches really show up in that yarn and in the cream color. It is always exciting to see what a professional photographer will do… I will be watching for it. Good job!
