Completed Cabled Sweater

It’s done!  Not only is it done, but it has been washed and worn out in public.  The knitters gave it a big thumbs up, so I was glowing the whole night.  Here are the final photos for your inspection.

The back is worked exactly like the front, so the whole sweater is a snuggly cabled hug.  The yarn I chose is a soft wool with a little silk content.  The fabric is cushy without being too warm and drapey without being too loose.  I’m considering this yarn/pattern pairing a definite success.

What do you think?  Could you see yourself snuggling into this sweater on a blustery winter day?

  • Pattern: my own, inspired by an old sweater knocking around in my closet for the last 10+ years, read about how it got started here
