Celtic Grace is a lovely cable cardigan with extra length and side vents. Designed in memory of my mother, Jean. She made an Aran pullover for me when I was in high school. I always liked it but didn’t really appreciate it until I began knitting again as an adult. Thanks Mom!
Designer Note: During all of the bind offs in this pattern, I have you do decreases periodically during the bind off. You are to either k2tog or p2tog, rather than a regular knit or purl, a few times during the bind off. I have you do this to prevent the cables from flaring out and making the edge of the knitting wider than the rest of the knitted fabric.
