Tapestry

a new Carol Sunday design

Tapestry

Just in time for Valentine's Day, something hopelessly romantic ...

.... with lavish cables - the shaping is incorporated into the stitch pattern ... knitted in 3-ply sport weight yarn, so it's very light weight.

... with lace details on bodice and a sort-of-a sweetheart neckline.

... and set-in sleeves ... the techniques used here really make the cables pop, even in this fine yarn.

Sweater body is knit from the bottom in 1 piece to underarms, then worked as 2 fronts and back.

Front cable borders with knit-in buttonholes continue as a narrow band around the neckline.
