CORRECTION: The chart for the Shadow Cable Pattern in the round has the symbols identified incorrectly. Cable 2 Back (C2B) should be Cable 2 Front (C2F) and vice versa.

This cardigan features a cabled stitch pattern on the body and sleeves that moves fluidly into the cabled yoke. For symmetry, the cables on the yoke switch direction at center back. The cardigan is fully seamless; sleeves are knit in the round and the body in worked flat in one piece to the armholes. They are joined for the round yoke, which is also worked back and forth in one piece. Decreases are incorporated into the cable pattern.

The modeled garment is a size S, worn with about three inches of positive ease.
