Get ready for fall with a mulled blend of closely related hues: two strands of Loft held together allow you to create your own custom color for this pullover. Carver is perfect for casual weekend wear, but its crisp patterning of twinned diamond cables on a ground of seed stitch makes this modified raglan smart enough for the office as well. A slight V-taper from hem to chest keeps the silhouette trim despite the comfortable loose fit. Work a crewneck in single rib to match the hem and cuffs or finish with a cozy turtleneck.

Gauge

21 stitches & 28 rounds = 4” in Cable Chart pattern with Size A needle(s) and 2 strands of yarn held together, after blocking
One 30-stitch repeat from Cable Chart measures 5¾“ wide with Size A needle(s) and 2 strands of yarn held together, after blocking

Please note, correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated round gauge.

Needles

Size A (for Main Fabric)
One each 16” and 32” circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)

Size B (for Ribbing and Tubular Bind Off of optional Collar)
One each 16” and 32” circular needles and one set of DPNs one size smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)

Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On and Bind Off only)
One each 16” and 32” circular needles and one set of DPNs one size smaller than Size B
Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)

32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (e.g., Sleeves).

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
