Gabriella is a strong yet graceful feminine form of Gabriel. I always think of cables as adding strength and structure to a garment.
The way they are used in this pullover they also add graceful lines and curves creating a beautiful feminine sweater.
The base cable pattern used is from Norah Gaughan’s Knitted Cable Sourcebook, which has so many wonderful cables! From playing with it I created the beautiful back.
I knew this one needed a special yarn so I used Bare Naked Wools Better Breakfast. It is wonderful to work with knits up beautifully. I had so much fun designing this pullover. I hope you have as much fun knitting it!
