Top-down sweater with cables
“Achille is a knitting project for people who, like me, love to follow charts while knitting. This is a top-down sweater with cables, bobble and diamond pattern. The Katia Cotton-Yak yarn that I have chosen to design this pattern is ideal for making cables and bobbles. Because the lightness of the wool and cotton blend with the velvet-like effect of the yak makes motifs and stitches stand out without weighing down the work”. Alice Hammer @tricotalicehammer
