The Tahki Yarns Abilene Kit includes the PDF pattern download and all of the Donegal Tweed yarn needed to knit this graceful lace and cable pullover in color #848 Cream.
Abilene is a beautiful sweater that features a curved back hem, saddle shoulders, and a leaf motif flanked by small cables. Knit in the round to the armholes, Abilene’s front and back are knit flat to the shoulder where they are seamed to the shoulder saddles. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and worked in the round down to the cuff, maintaining the lace and cable panel from the saddle shoulders. Knit in the iconic Donegal Tweed, a single ply of Irish wool twisted with colorful tweedy slubs, Abilene is a sweater that will be an instant classic treasured for years to come. Note: Stitch patterns are both charted and written out.
