Sugar Kelp Sweater in the Pro Guide to Knitting

My Sugar Kelp Sweater pattern has been published in the Pro Guide to Knitting. I am delighted my design has been included in this lovely publication for knitters who would like to learn new techniques. Inspired by a walk on the beach, the Sugar Kelp cable is based on the beautiful seaweed fronds washed ashore. I have used cabling, increasing and decreasing to form a lattice on a reverse stocking stitch background. The pattern makes up the central panel and a small cable motif at the cuffs.

The pattern was first published in the Knitter Magazine, Issue 55, January 2013. My previous blog post can be viewed by clicking here and other Sugar Kelp sweater projects can be viewed on Ravelry.
