I am so excited to have my cardigan in the newest issue of Twist Collective. This is my second design with Twist, and once again I found them wonderful to work with!
For the cardigan I wanted the juxtapostion of cables with lace. I swatched a few pairings before I settled on this curvy, coiling cable against the small circular eyelets. Seed stitch and deep ribbing was a natural with the cables.
I first knit this sweater in my own hand dyed worsted. I call this colorway Buttercup.
And the back view:
Light colors show off cables really well, making lighter colors a popular choice for sweater designs. Kate Gilbert, the editor of Twist Collective, wrote to make sure that I was ok with the yarn choice. I couldn't be happier with the pairing of yarn and design: the deep wine is one of my favorite colors ever and looks striking in cables and lace. I think the color adds a Victorian touch to design, which I love. The yarn is Classic Elite Legend in Deep Plum, and is a super luxe blend of 80% Merino and 20% silk. It was such a lovely, lush yarn to knit with.
