Generic cabled cardigan using EZ's in the round percentages

This is for my sister and she's a tiny woman. Size 30 to be exact. So designing sweaters for her is a must. Most magazine/book patterns are just too big and she likes to wear fitted sweaters. EZ has been a God-send! She had thyroid cancer and surgery on her neck so she requested an open neckline. I am pretty pleased with how this turned out. It's my 9 year old daughter modeling for me.

  • That sweater is lovely! So kind of youi to knit her a sweater to her needs. Years ago I remember my mom knitting hats for her best friends' grandaughter who was born with hydrocephalus. Something to be said for EZ and her knitting genius!

  • Beautiful work! I love that green, and the cables really make it look like the kind of retro style that's in right now.
