Horseshoe Cable Pullover
This lovely pullover is knitted from hoodie to bottom with seamless raglan yoke construction. Finishing is minimal, requiring only seaming on the top of the hoodie.

The pattern is written with row by row and very detailed instructions and has (14) pages. Simply start with two basic cables in flat knitting from hoodie and form a Horseshoe cable when knitting in the round for body.

Sleeves are working in the round with dpns. Ribbing on the sleeves and the body sides shapes fitted look and make room for ease. The pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters, with basic knowledge of cabling.

It is also provided how-to knit YouTube videos (4 parts) and the links are in the PDF file. Visit to my HubPages Blog for a free size.
