Baby Cables and Big Ones Too


 

 

 

 

 
This beautiful and original garment combines modern vanishing cables and two all time classics, garter stitch and stockinette.
The sweater is worked seamlessly from top-down and requires minimal finishing.

Upon purchase you receive 4 separate pdf-files. Fitted version (in English) is the new, updated version with better fit and neck shaping. Original version (in English, Finnish and French, each on its own pdf) has a loose fit and no neck shaping. The cables are charted in every version. I recommend printing out the chart pages for easier following.

Files are named as follows:
Fitted version: Fitted_Babycables_301214.pdf
Original version in English: Babycables_141112_English.pdf
Original version in Finnish: Babycables_141112_FI.pdf
