Sweater - Parkside Men's Sweater

Construction Notes This cozy cable sweater is knitted in pieces. Sleeves may be worked in the round or flat. A shawl collar, shaped with short rows, is worked separately and is sewn in. Three braided cables are placed on the front and two on the back. Worked in bulky yarn, it’s a surprisingly quick knit.

I’ve been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like light-weight wools, cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I have sold designs to Interweave Knits, Vogue Knitting, Knit Picks, Knit Now magazine, Classic Elite Yarns, and Three Irish Girls Yarns, and have been published in several books. I produce a monthly newsletter with knitting tips, freebies, reviews, and giveaways -- please sign up at www.knitandtravelandsuch.blogspot.com. Get a free pattern when you sign up.
