FO: Child's sweater with E. Lavold cables
I have just finished this sweater for 7-yr-old DGD. I used cable patterns from Elsebeth's Lavold's "Viking Patterns for Knitting." Many thanks to LANA for suggesting that I would enjoy the cables in this book. I used the tables in Ann Budd's "The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns" for the sweater dimensions. Here are the pictures:

OUTSTANDING Betty!
Wonderful cable placements, exquisitely finished.

Anyone who likes cables, would LVE Elsebeth's Lavold's "Viking Patterns for Knitting."

It's so intricate and beautiful. I love the cable right by the buttonhole band, and how it spreads out into that diamond shape on the front chest. Oh, and I love the motif in the center back, and the twists around the midriff. I'm so impressed!
