Anael - The Romantic Cable Cardigan

The Romantic Cable Cardigan is a warm and cosy cardigan with traditional alpine cables new combined in a straight silhouette with romantic valances fitting a small princess.

Usually traditional alpine cables are very conventional and antiquated. I interpreted these traditional cables in a modern way. So I designed the cardigan straight and long and added a romantic valance for inspire romantic little girls. They shall feel like a small princess.

My daughter loves it. Meanwhile the cardigan is the must-have in our kindergarden and many mothers, grandmas and aunts asking for the pattern to knit it for their loved ones.

The pattern includes a detailed description with pictures and stitching glossary for the different cables.

The pattern is a PDF with 7 pages in english and german.
