Tidy cables, stockinette stitch, and simple shaping make this elegant pullover a go-to choice for Autumn and Winter. A near-seamless construction makes it even easier and more interesting to knit, with only seams at the shoulders and one three-needle cast off at the back of the neck.

Construction and Pattern Notes:
The pullover is worked from the bottom up in the round, then split for the underarms and neck. Each piece is then worked separately and joined at the shoulders using a three-needle cast-off.
Sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked from the top down. Varying lengths of short rows create a smoother (less pointy) cap. Sleeves are roomy; simply pick up fewer stitches if a more fitted sleeve is desired, reducing the number of short rows worked.
