Description
Traditional Aran staggered open cables get a bold new look when worked with big needles and lofty, lightweight wool-acrylic yarn in an extra-bulky gauge. Apres-ski was the inspiration for this cozy, comfy, perfect-for-a-weekend-getaway sweater but, as it turns out, it adapts well to a professional look.

mega cables Review by Kathleen

This is a lovely pattern to knit and it makes up really fast, it took me a bit of time to get used to using a chart as English patterns use written instructions but I do like the method of giving the finished bust size instead of the actual bust size, knitted a jumper a little while ago and it would have gone round me twice and I checked my tension

This is a gorgeous pattern, it knits up quickly and is simple to do. It took me a bit of time to get used to following a chart as English patterns use written instructions. I do prefer the method of giving the finished garment size rather than the bust size, I recently knitted a jumper from an English pattern to my bust size and it would have fitted me and someone else as well (and I checked my tension!!!)
