Knitted flat from the top down, this Aran Cardigan features deeply sculptured cables, saddle shoulders, and square armholes. The cabled buttonhole-band includes lovely buttonholes. The neckband, cuffs, and bottom skirt feature snake cables as well. Most wrong side rows are worked by knitting the knits and purling the purls. All the motifs in this design are two stitch wide cables. Be sure to view my blog post on sewing buttons on knitted fabric for a professional finish! Charts, photographs, and schematic are included. I designed this pattern in loving memory of my sister Lisa Suzanne.
