Chunky Cabled Sweater

16 Jul

I can’t believe how long it took me to finish this sweater from Zoe Mellor’s Adorable Knits for Tots. It took me a while to figure out the pattern. There was a lot of ripping that happened early on. I am so used to knitting cable patterns with charts, so whenever I encounter one without a chart, I get a bit thrown off. I started knitting this sweater at the end of May using yarn from my stash.  I doubled up two strands of Rowan Scottish Tweed 4ply and used some left over Rowan All Seasons Cotton, but it didn’t seem to look quite right.

After I purchased some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, I realized there was a mistake in the pattern. Just as well, I like the chocolate brown with light blue trim.

I made the sweater for a 2-3 year old.  J may be able to wear it this winter. Here he is wondering why I put him in a sweater on such a warm summer day.
