Have you ever wanted a simple cabled sweater but not the work?
I love cables but carrying around the hooks and trying to manipulate all the stuff whilst on the train is a bit tricky. So I decided to try to create a cable looking sweater by lace.
Dainty sweet lace cables add the look I was headed for but not the stuff that goes with them. The soft lofty yarn adds a sweet appeal. The sweater can be used for dress up or dress down which adds to my desire to create it. I love items that can be worn throughout the year and for all types of occasions.
The super great thing about lace is that it stretches, so there is no shaping needed. The sweater gently forms to your body and will accentuate your curves. You can add buttons all the way down or just on the top. The lace creates the buttonholes so no additional worries.
The sweater consists of two lace cables, the braided lace and the daisy stitch cable separated with purl stitches.
