Most of the time, I crave for challenges in my knitting and when it comes to yarn, untreated woolly wool is my favorite. But sometimes, you long for something simple and good old merino. That's what happened with this pullover.

What: Intertwined (Rav link) / Own pattern
How: Circular needles 3.5 and 3.75 mm
From: WalkCollection Merino Sport, 315 g

Intertwined sweater got its name from the cables winding down from shoulders to cuffs. They get their fun texture from garter stitch.

The sweater is relaxed and boxy. It's got long sleeves and no waist shaping. 

The cables get to truly shine as the sweater is worn with the purl side out. But fear not! All in-the-round parts are worked on the WS with just endless knitted stitches so no need to worry about purling.

The sweater starts with working two shoulder straps that you then pick up stitches from to work the back and front separately until you reach the undearm. From then on, the work is joined in the round.

My favorite thing about the design is how even though the body and sleeves are worked in different directions (as usual), the cables run seamlessly down from shoulders to sleeves.

As always, you can find the pattern on all my platforms: RavelryPayHip, and Lovecrafts. And I'm happy to tell you that it's time for my Spring Sale!
