Notes from the Designer:

Cellist is a modern, boxy, unisex poncho that is designed to be worn as a layering piece. With minimal shaping, this is an ideal first garment for an intermediate knitter. The piece has a tall, cabled funnel neck and cabled edging. The main body is knit flat and seamed together at the end. A diamond shaped cable pattern that’s filled with seed stitch runs up the center of the garment, and high slits complement the sides. This design was inspired by a Korean television drama in which the main character Hae Won is a cellist who is questioning her path in life. The series took place in the dead of winter, and she wore many beautifully knitted, warm, layering pieces to keep her warm, as she rediscovered who she was and her place in her community. 

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial in which I demonstrate how to work the cable stitches featured in this pattern. 
  • Garment is worked flat in two pieces and then seamed.
  • Armholes and side edges are picked up and knit after blocking.
  • Pattern is unisex and does not have waist shaping.
  • Diamond cables are filled with seed stitch.
  • The length for each size is increased by an increase of repeats in the bottom edging.
  • SIZING OPTIONS: To make the garment larger, add two additional stitches (multiples of 4 total for CO) to both the RH edging and LH edging (and work in stockinette stitch the entire time). If you wish to make the piece shorter or longer, simply adjust the number of repeats on the bottom edging. Otherwise, consider making the garment with a larger needle and possibly thicker yarn.
  • The total number of rows for the main body for each size, including the bottom edging, is as follows: 182, (182, 186, 190) (194, 194, 198).
  • This is a pattern with positive ease. Please look at the measurements listed in the table to determine which size you would like to knit, depending on how you would like the garment to fit.

This pattern was such a joy to knit! I made one for my daughter and she loves wearing it. The pattern is very well written, clear and easy to follow. The cables are good for beginner knitters to try.

I recently downloaded this pattern and decided to make. After a couple of false starts, I finally got it right. It's a lovely pattern to work on and my muscle memory kicked in really quickly. This is my first project after the Christmas rush. I can take my time on this item to give my hands a rest. Thank you for this lovely pattern.
