"Blissful Twists" in Knit Today Magazine

I am absolutely delighted with the amazing photos of my asymmetric cable sweater in this month's Knit Today Magazine, Issue 123. This cable sweater is easy to knit and the self striping yarn gives an interesting twist to the cables.

The big cable braid is made by knitting extra rows on each cable section before completing the row. These extra rows 'pool' the colour in the cables. The big cable flows from the cast on edge all the way to the wide neck cast off. There are also single cables at the sleeve cast on edges. I love the way this makes big knitted folds at all the edges!

The sweater is knitted in Sirdar Sylvan Chunky, Shade Burley (204). This self striping yarn is also a 'thick and thin' yarn. This makes the cable vary in width depending on which part of the yarn you are at when knitting the extra rows. I like the variation of the thickness of the yarn combined with the structured cable and the stripes.

Errata for Blissful Twists (added 22/11/16).
After completing the first sleeve as given in the pattern, the correct instructions for the second sleeve should read:
“Repeat for second sleeve, working cable on Row 7 as follows:
Row 7: K9 (9, 9, 11, 11), C15B, k to end of the row.

  1. I am currently working on the sleeves in this project and it says to increase on what would be purl rows but by knitting that row is this right?
