Inspiration is a funny thing. Who would of thought that this

I wanted to imitate the drama of a fur trimmed cardigan by using cables and garter stitch. I took some elements and ignored some others that wouldn’t translate well to a heavier knit. For example, I made my cardigan fitted through the body because worsted weight yarn wouldn’t drape attractively around my waist but I made the sleeves extra full around the cuffs because I knew it would work well there.
Anyways, I just thought I’d share with you guys part of how my design process works. This is why I love to read fashion blogs. They give me great ideas.
