Wow. This pattern has taken me about a year and a half to complete from conception to release. BUT, I am so excited that it’s FINALLY done! And I am so happy with the results! You can see full pattern details here on Ravelry.
Centripetal is a universally flattering and fashion-forward sweater that is surprisingly fast and easy-to-knit. The back and sleeves are knit flat using simple increases and decreases, and the rest of the sweater is a large, flat circle created using short rows to build a series of cabled wedges.
Short rows making you squeamish? Try the German Short Row Method to maintain your flow and eliminate that pesky wrapping and turning.
Check out this tutorial I created to show you exactly how to use this technique in Centripetal:
I will be posting more about how this design came about and the complete process (from sketching to swatching to testing – ick!) in the next few days. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
