This elegant sweater by Kerri Blumer is featured in Knitscene Fall 2018. Although subtle and understated, the cables at the top front of the Claire Sweater make an impact. Eyelet lace at the sweater’s cuffs and hem complements the cables, adding a delicate and feminine touch. This pullover is worked back and forth in separate pieces from the bottom up and seamed.
Magazine Kit includes Knitscene Fall 2018 (printed pattern inside) and selected yarn. Sizes have been combined for kit sizes only. Pattern comes in 6 individual sizes. For yarn winding services, click here.
