This easy fit cabled sweater is a favorite from Norah Gaughan's Knitted Cable Sourcebook. The pullover has an intricate but easily repeatable cable design down the front and is accented with ribbed cuffs and hem. The cut of the pullover is loose but slightly fitted so that it skims the silouette. This pullover is worked from the top down. Uses round of decreases to shape the circular yoke. The collar included short rows and is worked last, making any modifications easy. The cabled panel can easily be substituted with any of the 150 stitch patterns in the book!
Kit includes Norah Gaughan's Knitted Cable Sourcebook (pattern inside) and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
