Cables cascading down the front and wrapping around the back to make a fun and intriguing knit! I found these two yarns (MAD|TOSH Tosh Merino Light + Tweed and Shibui Knits Silk Cloud) at my local yarn store (Loopville Yarns) and decided they were a perfect couple and had to be made into something. Thus we have Glacier Ridge! The MAD|TOSH is a lovely tweed in the colorway Moonglow and Silk Cloud is a lovely mohair adding the perfect halo in the colorway Glacier, one of Julie Hoover’s signature colorways. The construction is a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers.

This pullover is constructed from the top down in one piece using the contiguous method. There is a lot going on in the beginning, but as you proceed the increases slow down. There are notes within the pattern to guide you. There is no body shaping past the armholes, but the cables do add some natural shaping. The body and sleeve lengths are adjustable.
