Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Spring 2001:
The simple cables, lace and bobbles that cover this textured pullover create a misleading - but impressive - look of complexity. Simultaneously smooth, lustrous, lofty and elastic, the silk-wool yarn yields an elegant-rustic look that can be dressed up or down. The sweater front and back are worked from the lower edge upward, with stitches decreased at the waist to form a peplum; the sleeves are worked separately from cuff to armhole; the center cable motif extends into the stand-up neck.

Finished Size: 39¼ (43½, 49)” (99.5 (110.5, 124.5) cm) bust/chest circumference. Sweater shown measures 39¼” (99.5 cm).

Yarn: Horstia Maulbeerseide-Schurwolle (50% silk, 50% wool; 109 yd [100 m]/50 g): #9/1316 pink, 11 (12, 13) balls.

Gauge: 23 sts and 26 rows = 4” (10 cm) in patt stitch.

Needles: Size 7 (4.5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
