N1128 Ruched Cable-Edged Jacket

Here is a Celtic poem of a cardigan, cabled and cropped. Melanson has you knit the bottom cable strips for back and fronts lengthwise, then pick up along them and work the body fabric to the armholes, increasing a bit as you work up. She is an impeccable designer, much given to mirroring increases and decreases, so there's lots of fine detailing in this piece. The 'ruching' comes from an unusual pickup rate for the front bands, which creates a gentle gathered effect. Pride is a 100% merino crepe; its gloss and softness are beautifully set off with the textures presented here.
