A cabled pullover with all the elegance Catherine the Great could possibly demand, and with all the warmth you need to get you through a long winter.
Worked in pieces from the bottom up and seamed, this pullover features set-in sleeves and waist shaping. Instructions also include tips on working cables without a cable needle.
This pattern uses CHARTS for the cable patterns.
