This delicate, feminine pullover bares your arms to the spring sunshine and makes an impact with a pair of bold cables with delicate eyelets along the raglan lines. But the real surprise is on the back, where an innovative arch shape turns the same cable and lace sideways and creates a reversible garment. The body is worked in the round from the hem up, then divided to work the raglan yoke on one side and shaped with short rows to form the arch yoke on the other. The upper yoke and sleeves are worked in one piece from the top down, with the sleeves knit circularly, and then seamed to the body. Knit with positive ease in Shelter, Coda will let you wear a pretty frock while the weather is still chilly or dress up a casual outfit.


  • The body is worked in the round from the hem to the underarms. Front and back are then divided. One yoke is worked with raglan shaping alongside cable and lace patterning; the other yoke is worked with an innovative arch shape, incorporating the same cable and lace pattern. The arched yoke is worked with short rows, and each cable and lace panel is short rowed as well, and then joined (as with a knitted-on edging) to live stitches at the center of the yoke. Both sides of the arch are then grafted together. The upper yoke and sleeves are worked as a single piece, from the neck to the underarms, at which point each sleeve is joined in the round and worked circularly to the cuff.
  • For assembly, the raglan side of the body yoke is sewn to the open side of the upper yoke, and the arched side of the body yoke is sewn to the matching curved side of the upper yoke. The collar is picked up and worked in the round after assembly.
  • Garment may be worn with either the raglan yoke or the arched yoke in the front. The raglan yoke is referred to as the Front in the pattern instructions.

Size A (for Main Fabric):
One 32” circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)

Size B (for Ribbing):
One each 16” and 32” circular needles and one set of DPNs, one size smaller than Size A

Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only):
One 32” circular needle, one size smaller than Size B

32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e. 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. Please test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
