Thea Colman has a new pattern and it is gorgeous. Meet Claret - you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry.

Claret is a deeply textured, cabled sweater featuring cables in diagonal lines. At both hem and wrist, the cable motif emerges from the cast on rib in beautiful V-shaped sections, which are then worked upwards to create a deeply striking fabric.

The center cable on the front of the sweater opens up to create a clean edge for the deep V-neck, and this edge is brought around the shoulders and back neckline for a beautifully finished look around the collar.

Claret’s sleeves echo the body with a single panel of the cables, and the back of the sweater provides some contrast, using a simpler version of the chart - and some less involved knitting!

As always with my sweaters, Claret is designed so you can personalize the fit if needed. Along the sides of the body and under arms, sections are worked in reverse stockinette to allow for easy modifications in circumference around body or sleeve, and notes are also in pattern for lengthening body, sleeves, or armholes as desired.

Claret is worked from the bottom up in pieces and seamed. Seams are straight and simple, and sweater is designed with garter edge stitches to make the assembly hassle free.

All cables are both charted and written.
