This sweater was most certainly a labour of love. It is to date the most complicated sweater I have made. Not only it was cables but I had to determine armhole decreases in cabled pattern! Not quite as simple as it sounds since each cable has a slightly different gauge than the one it is next too. I made the neck opening wide as this was to be a dressy sweater so that there would be room for the collar of Sean’s dress shirts to lie undisturbed.
I did try to write up the pattern but due to computer hiccups I lost too much information to be able to do so.
Sean likes his sweater (always a relief) and has been wearing it since he got it on xmas morning. My mom and aunt who were in Ireland a few years back commented that it looked like a lot of the sweaters they saw while there.
