I am so excited to finally release this pattern. This one was a labor of love for me, the first sweater I designed for both my boys. Little boys in intricately cabled sweaters are just adorable in my eyes. With two little boys at home I couldn’t resist designing a cabled sweater for them to wear. The cable patterns in both the front and back split and the cables wind around the collar. A braid winds down the outside of the sleeves. Named for Monomoy Island off of Cape Cod, Massachusetts where the twisting shoals twine like the cables on this sweater.

After taking a much-needed break over the holidays (and recovering from my annual Christmas bought of bronchitis), I’m back at it! I’ve got 3 new patterns in various stages of completion, plus and oldy-but-goody that never got released, all waiting for me to finish them up and release them. I’m using three fun new yarns – the blue cabled sweater is in Cascade’s Ultra Pima Fine, 100% Cotton. The gray tweed sweater is Remix, a unique blend from Berocco of 30% Nylon, 27% Cotton, 24% Acrylic, 10% Silk, & 9% Linen. And lastly the socks are Plymouth Yarn’s Diversity, which is an acrylic/polyester blend. And the best part – all three are machine washable!
This is a super easy, super fast pattern. You can easily knit the smaller sizes in a day, the larger sizes in a weekend. With a gauge of 2.5 stitches per inch, you can see why! Knit in the round from the bottom up to the arm holes; the front and back panels are knit, then joined. Finally, you pick up and knit the sleeves – there isn’t even any seaming involved, it’s so easy! And the fuzzy yarn is super soft against baby’s sensitive skin. Has 6 sizes: Newborn, 3m, 6m, 12m, 18m and 24m Buy from Ravelry Buy from Craftsy
