Cable madness! This beautifully cabled cardigan is a combination of rounded yoke on the back with an expanding cable design and raglan on the front and sleeves. Adalia, a distinctive name for a distinctive cardigan, means God is my refuge or noble one. You will definitely feel like one of the nobility when you wear this cardigan.

Notes:
This cardigan is constructed from the top down in one piece combining a raglan construction with a rounded yoke. The front and sleeves are worked raglan style while the back is worked as a rounded yoke.
The length of the body and sleeves can be easily adjusted.
The buttonhole and button bands are worked as part of the body of the cardigan. I placed the buttons every buttonhole.
There is a lot going on with the back charts especially in the yoke of the pattern. Please read all the notes at each section. There is a diagram at the end of the pattern for the charts worked on the back.
