FO: Backward Cabled Pullover - The Sequel
I loved my first Backward Cabled Pullover that I knew I had to make a second one. While the first one was made from Karabella Margrite (a wool/cashmere blend), I decided to make this one appropriate for spring and summer. I'm a bit sad that the yarn I used for this version, Ella Rae Silkience, is now discontinued! It feels so nice against the skin and I love the shiny gleam that the silk lends to the yarn. Even sadder that I can't even find this colorway online anymore either. On the bright side, I did pick up a bag of Silkience in a lilac shade from Little Knits a while back, so there's enough for me to make a cardigan with that one day.
Pattern: Backward Cabled Pullover from Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard
Yarn: Ella Rae Silkience, Colorway: 12
Amount: 6 balls (I had literally less than a yard left from the last ball.)
Needles: US 6 and 7
Mods: None that I can recall except for adding an inch or two in length, and of course placing the scoop in the front
