NOTE: 01/15/2018 - typo in pattern; you must do the stitch pattern rep SEVEN times, not 3.5 as stated in the pattern. Further, you should complete SEVEN full repeats (all rows thru 28). A revision has been uploaded this morning.

Now this is one you’re going to love to knit.

Lots of cables knit into two rectangles, joined together, and then knit in the round a high-collar cabled creation, decreasing up to the k1p1 ribbing at the top.

Sample used 3 skeins of Lion Brand’s Fishermen’s Wool in Natural … so about 1400 yds of worsted weight wool needed with US #9 circs (in various lengths) and a crochet hook to ensure the yoke doesn’t stretch.

Directions are charted and written out.
