For me, fall knitting is all about cables. As soon as the weather shows the slightest hint of cooling down I want to start working on textured sweaters and hats. I am working on a commissioned project at the moment, so for now I'll just share with you some of my favorite cabled creations.
The Joselyn Cowl is one of my best selling patterns, and for good reason. The Japanese stitch pattern is as interesting to look at as it is to knit. Cables, lace, garter stitch- it's all there!
Sinai, part of the Louet Fall 2014 collection, has an interesting construction and a fun honeycomb pattern on a background of moss stitch. The lower section is worked side to side with short row sections to create a trapezoid shape. The upper body is picked up along the top edge and worked upwards.
Last winter I think I wore my Lava Rock Cardigan almost every day! The squishy yarn created a supremely soft fabric, and the sporty zip-front style paired perfectly with my usual daily attire of a t-shirt and jeans. Twisted stitches make the panels of zig-zag cables pop on a background of plain stockinette.
Last is the Alison Pullover, part of my collection for Knitscene Fall 2013. I didn't get to keep the sample, and I haven't yet had time to make myself one. It is really amazing for me to see projects from my patterns pop up on Ravelry, and this pattern seems to be one of those silhouettes that flatters everyone.
Cassie loves to knit, read and cook. She sometimes does all three at the same time.
