CableLuxeTunic for my Mam
Created By: Baba Van Wijnkoop
Craft: knit
Materials: no idea - something with viscoseand silk in it - a next time I would use a Laceyarn - so it would not be so heavy for my arms :-) Details you can see on my flickr-accoumt (Year 2009)
Pattern Source: lionbrand:

I'm a a knitter with experience - but the cablework at the start of the sweater was a hard work and I needed a lot of concentration to knit it. A next time I would start with a provisional cast-on.

The main part was a peanut to knit :-) when once I arrived to finish the cable around the shoulder *Smile*.

The sweater - made for my Mam - over 70 years old - receive until today every time she wear it - a lot of congratulation. The shape of the tunic show out a nice body shape (silhouette) - because of the A-line of this Tunic.

My binding-off I did with a crochet-hook: 1sc in every st, followed by a ch st.
