Cloud Peak by Joji Locatelli is a seamless, with a delicate, reversible shawl collar, cabled cuffs, and an outstanding feature: pockets.Both the back and fronts of this cardigan are simultaneously worked, employing a small saddle shoulder construction. The sleeves are picked up around the underarm and worked in the round, using uncomplicated short rows to shape the shoulder cap. The pockets are cleverly positioned and hidden behind the cabled patterns, transforming this piece into a wardrobe essential that you’ll frequently reach for.

WIPs and FOs
The two pieces look amazing together. I can’t wait until my daughter has their baby girl to model it. I used Garnstudio Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk for both pieces.
After having my Serkinet by Kate Davies Designs on the back burner while I worked on other projects, I finally picked up the stitches to work the second sleeve.
The sleeves moved slowly but surely…
My Serkinet is finished! The #sue2knitskatedavieskal was originally set to finish on August 31st. i finished it on August 31st! The KAL runs until at least the end of September!
