Description

This little sweater features cable work on the front only, with stocking stitch being used on the back and sleeves – ideal for when you don’t want a bulkier sweater, but would still like some interesting detail. It will knit up quickly, too. This is also a good introduction to cable-work if you have not worked with it before - as there is only the front panel, it will not be overwhelming. Eimear is pronounced Ee-mer and means “swift.” The actual garment measures 23, 25 or 27 inches around at the chest. There are four pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs. Worsted yarn was used for the pictured garment, you don't need to use the yarn specified as long as you make sure that you check the gauge. The garment is knit flat, so only straight needles are required.
