Cabled Jumper

Posted by 2ton Inspired on July 18, 2008

I bought Chic Knits for Stylish Babies during a closing clearance sale at Borders. The book is organized by outfit that usually includes booties, hat, pants and sweater. Over 60 patterns total. It was a real steal for the price!

Overall the pattern was amazing. Well written and as far as I saw, no errors! I was confused a bit by the cabling because it’s on an odd row, which means every other cable is done on the wrong side, but once I figured that out it was smooth sailing.

About half way through (maybe 3 months ago!) I lost sight of the end and put it into hibernation. Although cables add some interest to knitting after awhile it felt tedious. Last month I decided it was time to finish the jumper and pulled it back out. The construction is great because there is little seaming. Although I did have a quite a few ends to weave in.

Because babies tend to grow out of their clothes fast I made the 12 month size so that the baby could grow into it.

    How much yarn did you use? The amount called for in the book seems a bit excessive to me!

    Hi Emma,

    It’s been awhile since I finished this but I’m pretty sure I used about one and a half balls of the Caron simply soft. I know one ball was not enough. Each ball of caron is about 315 yards.
