Nantucket Brocade

    Nantucket Brocade

Pattern from: Knitting the New Classics by Kristin Nicholas
(also available as an individual pattern from Classic Elite)

Yarn called for: Newport

Yarn to be used: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, already acquired.

This should be a good sweater for me to work on. The main body is worked in a knit/purl pattern... easy, easy, but the cables on the ribbing and neck should make it interesting (and really make the sweater pretty, IMO. I especially love the neckline, and how the bind-off edge looks a little scallopped. If I were brave (which I may or may not be), I would think about trying to do the sleeves from the top down (or w/ a provisional cast-on and then knitting down) in order to have the same edge effect there.
