Emery caught my eye the first time I saw it. I am a total sucker for a classic cable knit sweater. I started knitting this back in the beginning of 2014 and put it down to knit other things. I picked it up again and actually finished this in the spring when it got too warm to wear it. Now that the weather is cooling down, this is the perfect cozy sweater to throw on.
The pattern is Emery by Michele Wang for Brooklyn Tweed. The yarn I used is Cascade 220 in light gray and I knit it with size US 5 and US 7 needles.
I knit this according to the pattern but I did need to make some mods because my row gauge was significantly off. I needed to do some math to make the waist decreases, the sleeve increases and sleeve caps work. Everything turned out great and I absolutely love it. One of my favorite details is the ribbing on the v-neck. It looks so professional! I also love all of the cables which make this sweater really cozy and warm. This sweater is so classic that I am sure I will be wearing it for years to come.
