Aran Cable Cardigan




I'm knitting a wool cardigan. Probably this is the only project I'm doing in wool. The weather in Malaysia is not suitable at all for wearing wool outdoor unless you are like me sitting in a freezing office from 9 to 5. I got the yarn actually for another project but after looking at the earlier pattern for quite some time I'm kinda of got bored with it. Recently, while browsing thru some books in the bookstore I found this book Aran Knitwear and Accessories(編んでみよう アランもようのウエアと小もの) by Nihon Vogue. There are a few nice designs in this book that I really like.


For this round, I've chosen the cable cardigan. The yarn I'm using is Laines Du Nord Korall which I got it from Webs. So far I've completed the front and the back. 2 more sleeves to go before seaming and the collar.

I'll update again with more progress soon.

Looks like it's coming along great. The yarn really shows the cables beautifully! I always love seeing what folks are doing with the yarn they buy from us!

Enjoy!

The cable cardi looks like it's coming along great. That design on the front cover is gorgeous. Do you plan to make that one also?
