Boreas

Stitch magic. A dramatic diamond cable design is worked in pieces from the bottom up, then sewn together after blocking.

This cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up, then sewn together after blocking. The Front armholes are worked to a longer depth than the Back. The Front bands are worked in two pieces, a front and a back facing; the zipper is sewn in place between the bands. The cable pattern is presented in both chart form and row-by-row instructions.

This knitting pattern includes written directions, chart and written instructions for cable pattern, front and back images, and a schematic with measurements.
