CRAZY CABLES

Description

This is one of my first designs, it’s knitted flat, not in the round like most of the latest ones. I had a thing for turtle necks back then, hehe. It’s made in a wool-cotton mix, which is perfect for sensitive skins like mine. It’s nice and snug without being too tight, and there’s a little short row trick on the front at the hem to avoid the whole shorter in the front longer in the back effect that is often caused by normally-sized busts. And for those with tiny busts, it’s actually quite becoming having a front slightly longer than the back. Pictured in a size Small
