The best feature of saddle-shoulder construction is the ability to continue a pattern—in this case, cables separated by garter panels—seamlessly from the neck edge, across the shoulders, and down the length of the sleeves. Because of the draw-in from the cable twists in this allover pattern, the DK-weight yarn used here works up at a gauge of 7 stitches/inch, which is more typical of fingering-weight yarn. Beginning as a cardigan, the body is joined for a pullover at the base of the button placket. The cable pattern is centered so that the button and buttonhole bands (which are worked simultaneously with the fronts) align with the center front garter panel. The lower body stitch count has been adjusted to be an even multiple of the 9-stitch pattern. I extended the sleeve decreases all the way to the bind-off edges to produce a narrower cuff circumference. The neck is finished with a simple rolled edge.
