Simple Cable Cardigan PDF
This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
I designed this cardigan because I wanted to try to make cable motifs. Since I didn't want to overwhelm myself, I just added cable motifs in the neck, sleeves and waist, just enough to accentuate this cardigan. I love the result. This cardigan is knit in the round, from the top down, and in one piece, so there’s no seaming.
