Forbes Forest Pullover
Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2007: “Kathy Zimmerman designed bobbles and cables to suggest the abundant undergrowth of ferns and berries in Pennsylvania’s Forbes State Forest, with curved zigzags to remind her of hiking trails that wind their way deep into the woods. Set-in patterned sleeves; a DK wight cashmere-blend yarn; and finely etched, narrow cables refine traditional texture into a light, feminine sweater in the Forest Forbes Pullover. Body motifs flow smoothly upward to a wide, casual boatneck.”
Finished Size: 31 (36, 41, 46, 51)” bust circumference, slightly stretched after blocking.
Notions: Cable needle (cn); markers (m); tapestry needle.
Additional Gauge: 99 center body sts of combined frond and zigzag cables measure 13” wide on larger needles, after blocking
Note from Interweave Knits, Winter 2007: “Work all increases and decreases one stitch in from edges.”
