Boyden is a cardigan with asymmetric cables inspired by the grape vines of my local winery. Fitted waist shaping and seamless set-in sleeves make this sweater as enjoyable to knit as it is to wear! You can favorite and queue it on Ravelry.

Boyden is knit with Edna yarn from Dirty Water Dyeworks. This yarn is a polworth/silk blend. The silk adds strength and a little luster to the yarn while the polworth is soft and makes the cables pop. At 380 yards per skein this yarn is a wonderful option for all sorts of sweaters. I used the colorway Acorn, and you’ll need just 3 (3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6) skeins or 961 (1049, 1150, 1302, 1461, 1574, 1727, 1864, 1975) yards.
The body of this sweater is worked from the hem up in one piece. Faux seams are included at the sides and a twisting cable runs both the front and back of the right side to join at the shoulder. A complementary cable runs up the left sleeve. Stitches are picked up around the arm hole and short rows are used to shape the sleeve cap as the sleeve is worked down to the cuff.
