Cable Cardigan Sweater Knitting Pattern

Designed by Barbara Breiter

Cable Cardigan Sweater Knitting Pattern

The angora blend yarn used to knit this sweater has great stitch definition so the pattern and cables are very crisp. It's soft, does not shed, and is machine washable. It's light weight and the short sleeves make it perfect for warmer weather.

The cables on each side are reversed; you can see close ups of them here.
