I never guessed I would start knitting a collection when I knit Let It Flow earlier this month but that’s precisely what has happened. What’s more…I’ve found some patterns I am itching to knit, too! Sweet! I’m back baby!
I’ve already completed another Let It Flow…stream of consciousness type project. I call it Cascade because of the cascading cable detail on the ribbed sleeves.
As you can see, it’s a soft V-neck (or slightly elongated scoop) shape. I am very fond of changing up the neckline. Most patterns I find have you work a crew-neck. I find crew-necklines to be a YAWNFEST. Now don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with a nice crew-neck sweater but I am all for changing it up a bit and exploration. I mean really, how can one evolve without change?
I knit this sweater in Malabrigo Yarns’ Rios in the Lettuce colorway. Green is my favorite color after all (grey is a close second). I also knit this with size 9 circular needles. That is a little bigger than is specified for Rios. I have to thank my mom for directing me to this yarn. It was her idea to swing by a knitting shop in Oak Park, IL. It’s called Knot Just Knits. I’d never been there before and I was just in time to snatch up all 5 skeins they had in stock! Thanks mommy.
I also finished the sleeves with an invisible cast-off for 2×2 rib. This video is good for knitting looking to brush-up on this technique.
