J O U R N E Y is a seamless modified drop shoulder pullover. The sweater body is knit bottom up. You join to knit in a round after creating side splits. This little detail gives you more room in the hip area and creates nice visual affect.

The cables are fun to knit and create stunning visual effect. The stitch pattern that “fills in” the space between cables is slightly stretchy, textured, easy and fast to knit.

After you are done with the body, you will join the shoulders using the three-needle bind off method and then will start knitting sleeves in the round top down, creating the cable, mirroring the side cables on the main body.

The sleeves are knit extra long to create a folded cuff. You can easily modify the length of a sleeve and adjust the length of a cuff by trying the garment on.

The neckline is classic and is knit holding two strands of yarn for a more sturdy and durable effect. You are also free to experiment and make the neckband more narrow for a more open neckline look.

The sample is knit with 4″-5″ of ease, but you can easily play around with it.

For a more tailored look choose the size with 2″ of ease; for a more relaxed look – 6-10″ of ease.

The pattern provides detailed measurements of the garment and charts for all stitch patterns with written instructions.
