Perfect drape

I worked on this sweater nearly all summer, casting off just in time for fall weather.  The pattern/yarn combo created a sweater that drapes perfectly.

The yarn that I used was Madelinetosh DK in the colorway Rain Water.
The pattern, Vinita, by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, is a lovely all over cable design.

I tell my knitting students that there are a million ways to cast on, cast off, increase, decrease, & weave in ends.  There are also as many ways to construct a sweater. 

This sweater was a fun knit suitable for an adventurous beginner.  Starting at the back, adding on for the sleeves, casting off for the neck & then working down the fronts, this sweater is a one piece wonder!

Taking care to seam the sides & sleeves to match up the cables, I have had people try to figure out how this sweater was constructed because it looks nearly seamless.
