Feldspar Sweater for Yarn Stories

My most recent design for Yarn Stories is my Feldspar sweater. Feldspar is part of the Yarn Stories Minerality Collection. The stitch pattern combines a wide rib with mirror image cables. The cables are worked from the wide rib and have a bobble in the middle, making a little knot. The cabled knots begin in the centre of the sweater and spread towards the shoulders. There is a little cabled knot at each sleeve cuff.

Knitted in Yarn Stories Fine Merino DK, this short sweater has three quarter length sleeves. The length of the sweater body and the sleeves are easily adjustable. More rows can be worked within the wide rib sections. If you are thinking of adding length, I recommend purchasing one or two extra balls of yarn to ensure that you have the same dye lot throughout. Yarn Stories fine Merino DK is perfect for this design as it shows the stitch definition beautifully as well as being soft and flattering to wear.
