Anael - The Romantic Cable Cardigan is a warm and cosy cardigan with traditional alpine cables new combined in a straight silhouette with romantic valances fitting a small princess.
Usually traditional alpine cables are very conventional and antiquated. I interpreted these traditional cables in a modern way. So I designed the cardigan straight and long and added a romantic valance for inspire romantic girls. They shall feel like a princess.
My daughter loves it. Meanwhile the cardigan is the must-have in our kindergarden and many mothers, grandmas and aunts asking for the pattern to knit it for their loved ones.

Knitting was my first love
Even as a small girl marvelous dresses were my favourite. When I went to school I learned knitting from an old nun (but in a "normal" primary school in the beautiful small city Füssen, which is located at the foot of the castle Neuschwanstein of the famous king Ludwig II. in Bavaria / Germany), my passion was aroused. Since then I have the passion to create something of my own from scratch. My mother then taught me sewing, which probably was usual already in my family, because my grandma has always sewn, embroidered and crocheted. So has come slowly but surely one skill to another. I love beautiful, harmonious color combinations, noble natural materials and traditional patterns, soft wool, cashmere, silk, colors in soft natural tones and all colors of the rainbow ... I like to combine old and new and develop my own style from it. A little bit romance, a little bit boho, a little bit eco and lots of pleasure in doing things. Inspiration is my little girl that you see on many pictures at the moment.
