This month, I'm working on a pretty cable yoke sweater for the Bernat Blog. I love how it looks so far! :heart:

The pattern is in Bernat's "Cold Front (http://www.bernat.com/patternbook.php?PBS=530197)" pattern book, and is called "Cable Yoke Sweater".

Thank you all for the kind compliments! :muah:
I'm really enjoying seeing this cardigan take shape.

Pretty, pretty...and that color is gorgeous! Judy
I love the color too! It's Bernat Roving (http://www.bernat.com/product.php?LGC=roving)yarn in the color "Lazuli".

that's really nice! and it's inspiring me to think of pattern design in new ways! :D THANKS!
It has been a very interesting pattern to knit. I started out making the cable panel, then had to pick up over 200 stitches along the side to make the tiny stockinette section. Then bound off and picked up almost 100 stitches to knit the design for the body. I'm definitely getting my "pick and knit" practice with this project! :teehee:

Cute little cropped jacket! Short sleeves! Interesting!
It will be much longer when I'm done. And the sleeves are on stitch holders right now, to be finished up later. Here's a photo of how it should look when it's done.

There is also a shorter version. My sister is making this one in the "Putty" color.

I love that pattern! And I love your choice of colors as well. And that's saying something as I'm not really a "blue" person. I can't wait to see it finished. So far it's looking fantabulous.

I actually finished it some time ago, but I'm not supposed to post or blog about it anywhere else. You can find it in my Flickr photostream (http://www.flickr.com/photos/59646927@N00/), though. ;)

...I think I'm going to have to make myself one of these. It looks great! (But, oh, I hate picking up stitches! :gah: )

Hi Allie!
I hate picking up stitches too! I got over my hate though, by forging on to complete the sweater. I'm glad I persevered, because I love my new sweater! cloud9
