An idea

okay. so here is the sweater from interweave knits winter 2006 - the rambling rose cardigan, which I love - but that one is WAY over the top for me.

So here is what I think. I have some gorgeous malabrigo that I've been looking for a project for.
And here's my little design sketch. I think I wasn't clear on where the colors would be. The cable panel in the front & back and on the sleeves would be blue. The base of the sleeves and the sides would be purple.
and here's the cable I want to use from Vogue Knitting.
so - two things. 1. opinions please! 2. how much of each color??

I like the simplification of the pattern down to the aran cable. I also think the colors will work out really well. So go for it!

Hi... you'd left me a comment on my blog (evergreenknits.blogspot.com) asking about my Malabrigo sweater. Thanks for leaving me a comment, and sorry it's taken me a while to reply!

I knitted mine on size 9 needles at 3.5 st/inch. I love the fabric it produced, and although it showed signs of wear very quickly, it's easy to take care of with a lint shaver.

As far as the heat factor -- even though mine was only a half-sweater, and it was knit up at a large gauge, it's super toasty. So be prepared for serious heating power!

I'll be looking forward to seeing what you knit up!
