I had wanted to knit a cable knit sweater for a long time and was looking to take a traditional form and modernize it with an unorthodox colorway. The challenge was to find a yarn with a lot of personality but that still allowed for the definition of the cable design to shine through. When I saw LBA's Le Littoral in DK, I knew it I had found my sweater's colorway!
Cropped sweaters have become a popular new trend in knitting recently. I always sort of ignored these kinds of sweaters thinking that they wouldn't look right on me. My torso is long but thick and my waist and hips are almost the same circumference but I wanted to give it a try and see if I could make it work with my wardrobe.
