Today’s guest post comes from designer Kirsten Singer of Klever Knits! She’s got a design in the upcoming Fall/Winter Collection that is going to blow your mind. It’s cabled and beautiful, with unusual construction and easy fit and drape. Kinda perfect right? Take a look!
From designer Kirsten Singer: Axial is a cozy winter sweater that features an intricately cabled back that is worked from the center out; but don’t worry, it looks more complicated than it is. There are two main cable patterns, one which resembles that of the human collarbone, making it deserving of its name, Axial (Axial refers to the portion of the human skeleton that contains the rib bones).
I chose to work this in Rowan’s Kid Classic in a soft light blue colorway called Drought for two reasons. For one, I love the mohair halo that the Kid Classic has and it makes a relatively light weight cardigan that much warmer. Second, the color reminds me of the persistent fog at the beginning of the winter season.
This has been such an addicting knit for me, and once you get a handle on the concept behind the construction of the piece, it works up quite quickly with the Aran weight yarn. Minimal effort for a maximum impact? Say no more!
