This pattern is available for free.

This sweater is knocked off from a torn page out from a British Vogue and therefore I’ve offered it free to everyone interested.

I am not a sweater designer, so my instructions are very likely wonky, please help me to make this pattern just right.

Also, I have not created the sweater for larger or smaller sizes.

If you have the skills, please share your knowledge.

Knit In Chunks has been a labour of love. It was August, 2006, when I saw the many versions of the Pringle sweater in the fashion magazines. It was British Vogue who printed the largest version, thank you BV.

I was challenged. To see knitting in fashion and the complication of it.

The simplicity of the core. Three pattern pieces really. Yoke. Body. Sleeve. The challenge of the cabeling and the challenge of writing it down.

There was one commenter who suggested “A Knitting Treasury”, gave me the page number and the pattern names. But I didn’t go that route, it would have been too easy. I needed to figure this one out on my own. And then share it.

You see, I swatched that yoke cabel pattern for hours until I was satisfied with the representation. I tried cabeling on the wrong side and it worked. It was right! By the time “A Knitting Treasury” came in from the library, it was like checking the math answers in the back of the book.

I learned. I’m yet to publish the finalized pattern in its entirety. Check out my blog for the bits and pieces to date.
