A New Project


After purchasing the Fireside pattern by Amy Christoffers I decided that I would much rather try some complex cables than fiddle with lace. So I took a look in my Ravelry favorites and found the Must Have Cardigan from Patons. I have been rather wary of trying an all over cabled sweater because I love to knit while watching a show and it is really a challenge to pay attention to a tricky knit pattern and keep up with a show. To resolve this problem I did a little extra work.

I re-typed out the entire pattern line by line so it would contain all of the necessary information without having to flip flop between pattern charts and line pattern instructions and I have been watching old favorites on Netflix, so if my attention wanders to my pattern I won’t be missing anything. This system works especially well with my dual monitor set-up.


I started this cardigan last Sunday evening and have completed the left front piece and have just begun the right.

Here is a close up of the cable details.

I love how squishy the dense cables make the piece. If only I had begun this project in December instead of April I might have been able to use it. At least it will be done in time for my trip to Ireland. I have a feeling I will need it there.
