I looked at all your recent cardigans and you know what I think other than compliments? I should start knitting something with cables. They always look so rich in your projects.

When cables are used/placed artfully, they define the lines and design of the design! I prefer judicious use of cables, rather than the all-over-the-place use of cables!

I love the chain cable in this sweater! It is petite as well as unusual. So much more interesting than the old rope cable.

How do you do it? Each and every piece you post are stunning. I can only look at your things and try to pretend one day I might make just 1 thing as gorgeous as you.

You're so kind. I appreciate your compliments, as well as those from our whole KH family!

If you're wanting to knit your first sweater, let me know. I have a few suggestions regarding the pattern design!

We all start somewhere! My first sweater was a cabled aran, which I did okay....but I was totally ignorant about gauge, which is what contributes greatly to the overall size size! I knit the size small....my aran pullover turned out a size XXXL!

You were probably able to wear it the next day all right. Our weather sure has been fickle.

Lovely dove grey and I really like the sleeve modifications you made. So much better than regular ribbing in this case. I also like the "swing" you added. Very easy fit with a little swing.

They are very sincere compliments for sure. Since you are so sweater talented I would love your suggestions for 1st time sweaters. Possibly something to get first timers started without a lot of seaming? I know I will never get to where you are but I would love some suggestions for a begginer pattern to get over "sweater" fear.

I know it might appear dove grey on a different monitor since it's a dusty green-blue. I think it's more green than blue. Seafoam?

Thanks Judy!

This is the perfect cardigan for a first cardigan! Knit all in one piece, minimal seaming, no buttonholes! No collar, no unusual shaping! I love the simple lines. I made mine longer, but it's anyone's decision.


Pattern is FREE, too! The Allegra!
