A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Own the road wherever you go in this sleek, sporty tailored sweater cardigan, adorned with eye-catching braided cable and bobble details on the front and back. I see it will serve me and/or the recipient in style for many years to come.

The lower body peplum is worked in one piece. Upper body is in two pieces–a right sleeve/upper body and left sleeve/upper body–worked from cuff to center back and seamed together at center upper back.

I haven’t made swatches for the 34-stitch cable or wave cable charts yet…and am fighting internally if I’d just skip them.

Based on the gauges achieved above, I will most likely knit mine following the design perimeter for the 36½ bust version. Back to holiday knits…Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
