Faux Cabled Cardigan

Faux Cabled Cardigan, Love of Knitting Spring 2016

Faux Cabled Cardigan by Vanessa Ewing in Love of Knitting, Spring 2016

Difficulty Level Intermediate

Traditional yoke shaping makes this top-down cardigan a quick and easy knit. A clever arching lace motif along the yoke and hem gives the appearance of cables and is beautifully enhanced by the simple background of reverse stockinette. The sport-weight wool is worked up in a looser-than-normal gauge to make this a comfortable, lightweight cardigan. Simple yet stunning, this sweater will be divine layered over your favorite jeans or dressy skirt when spring weather turns nippy.
