View Full Version : Cabled Baby Boy Pullover

04-23-2009, 01:38 AM
This my latest project. I made it for a baby shower coming up on Sunday. This is made bottom up in the round to the armholes and then the two sides worked separately. 3 needle BO for shoulders, neck picked up and done in the round. Sleeves picked up from the shoulder and knit down. No seams whatsoever.


Thats the front and here's the back.

Thanks everyone, for the compliments.

ArtLady, yes, I designed it myself. I have a pattern with a sweater almost like it (very similar, but with changes of color, a collar and completely different construction, # of stitches etc.) in an older Leisure Arts leaflet (#935), but I didn't follow the pattern. I used the stitch pattern they did, but otherwise I figured it out on my own. I glanced at a few things as I went....like I wanted to make the sleeves shoulder down and I looked to see how they did theirs, and they did them top down too, but they had seams. (I was wondering if I could really do the cables upside down without them looking completely different.)

I did a few things more than once and did some odd things. When I started the cables I was working in the round and decided to make the cable twists every 5 rounds and then when I divided I thought I was in hot water. If you are working back and forth an even number of rows works easier, but I discovered you can twist at least a C4F cable from the purl side and it works fine. Didn't know that. So I got out of that one.

I fudged a little on the cables near the neck opening. One side worked fine, but I twisted the cable one row sooner than I should have on the other side because it looked better that way rather than having a long section of cable that didn't get twisted right in front. Hard to explain, but I tried both ways.

The sleeves: I did the first sleeve and then decided I couldn't get the second one like it so I took the first one out and started it planning to only center 3 cables over the shoulder and then started thinking I wasn't going to be real happy with that, so I fooled around until I figured out how to make them mirror image. I surprised myself on that and hopefully learned something. I'm just a newbie at figuring things out and I make a lot of mistakes a wiser person wouldn't make.

I did the neckband 4 different times before I was happy.

I didn't follow a pattern, but I did look at a picture in an old Leisure Arts Leaflet (#935), called Adorable Babies 3, (7 Knit Designs by Carole Prior). I used the stich they used in the pattern but I didn't follow the pattern or construct it the way they did theirs. You could get a sweater pretty close to the same by following their pattern though but theirs has a collar and is made in pieces.
