Karis Cable Sweater:
Made with the soft and supple yarn, Cottonista. This full yoke sweater with delicate cable details is perfect for warmer weather. Made in the round from the bottom up with a pin tuck hem at the hem and sleeves. Plus, the yarn is a real treat.

GAUGE IS IMPORTANT:
As in all of the other garments that I make, I highly suggest making a hanging gauge swatch before you get started. This is important to see how gravity will alter the size of your cardigan after wearing it. Starting with a swatch will also save you the headache of making the wrong size before you even start. To make a hanging gauge swatch I start by making a swatch of the stitch pattern that is at least 6 inches square. Then I hang the swatch to a hanger or cloths line and add additional cloths pins to the bottom to simulate gravity. Take a before and after measurement of your swatch to see what happens to it.
