Finally, finally! My cabled top is ready. 🙂
This was the most fun I’ve had with cables till now — never a boring row! I did work on it on and off, though, so that might have been a contributing factor to the not getting bored bit. 😛
The Nako Saten yarn that I used for this was really fun to knit with. (I’ve bought more skeins to knit something for my mom.) And I totally love the color. ❤ It’s too hot right now to wear this top, but fall or winter would be perfect.
I knit everything top-down. I made the front and back separately, sewed them together, then knit seamless set-in sleeves. I lined all the edges with i-cords.
These are the cable patterns that I used for this top:
- Ensign’s Braid (The thicker one along the middle)
- Baby Bonnet (The hole-filled smaller ones separating the larger cable columns)
- Right cross (or back cross) cork cable (The ones at the sides)
To look up the pattern names, I referred to my old post which I’d written when I’d made just a little bit of progress on this one, and saw that I’d hoped this top would be epic when done. 🙂 I do think it’s turned out pretty epic (it’s my latest favorite project 😀 ), and I can’t wait to wear it when I’m out and about! ❤
