SC16-sw Aran Cardigan with Saddle Shoulder
Skill Level: Advanced. The complication in this sweater is getting your calculations done (may need aspirin!), and getting the hang of the cable patterns. After that, it is sweet brainless knitting to the end.
Yarn Suggestion: Best with a fine to medium weight yarn. Cable sweaters, such as this, are traditionally done in a light or white color. But mine was really fun in maroon. Will need approximately 22 to 24 ounces, depending on size.
Knit from the bottom up with an interesting series of cable and texture patterns. Cables start on saddle shoulder and go down to wrist. Design gives a nice square fit to the shoulders. I knit mine with a soft cormo wool that is a delight to knit and wear.
This sweater has a very nice fit. The saddle shoulders are better for shaping than shoulder pads. A very fun sweater to knit.
As with all SpinCraft Knitting Patterns this sweater can be knit to any size, using almost any yarn. What you will do is measure yourself, measure the gauge that comes from your yarn, and then perform some easy calculations to get the figures needed to knit this sweater. You are the designer!
