Knit and rip and knit some more

A long time ago, I bought a few skeins of Novita Nalle Color for kids. Quite some time ago, I started knitting a sweater of them (needle size 4 mm). Decided on cables (surprise?).

Cable ribbing was nice. But then I continued with improvised cables, with turned out horrific. Buried the project in my UFO basket.

In the beginning of November I realized that kids desperately need new sweaters. So I did some digging and some ripping and was left with the cable ribbing and half a skein of ripped yarn.

Instead of complicated cables, I decided on some rather simple ones. There’s a cable on both sleeves…

In the front, there’s another cable, which comes up higher than at the back.
