The best choice for heatwave knitting is clearly a cabled pullover, right? Haha! As I was working on these and wondering what the heck I’m doing knitting cables in this heat, I kept reminding myself that regardless of the weather, I need to get some patterns ready for fall. I’ve been meaning to get another cabled pullover designed, so here we are.
Cabled sweaters always seem to require the most swatches because it can be harder to visualize how they’ll look knit up than lace panels. The 3-D aspects and structural quirks means something that looks right on paper can still end up a dud. I used almost a full skein of yarn knitting swatches, but in the end, I found some great cables to use. The cable on the left edge of the left swatch in the second row of swatches and the one on the swatch on the right side of the second row are the two cables I’m most excited about. Now that I’ve knit my swatches, I need to sit down and do the math so I can get started on my sweater!
