This long-sleeved sweater with alternating cascading waterfall-like cables and dropped stitches has unique construction. The body is worked bottom-up with 1 by 1 ribbing that gracefully leads into meandering flowing cables. The top of the sweater has a square neck with 1 by 1 ribbing along the neckline and the sleeves are knit starting out with matching 1 by 1 ribbing that flows into alternating cascading waterfall cables and dropped stitches. The sleeves are worked bottom-up in the round until the underarm, and are bell-shaped, worked evenly until the upper arm increases. They are then worked back and forth, across the upper back, like a shrug, and grafted together at the center back, after the appropriate stitches are dropped. When binding off stitches for the neckline, armholes, and just before grafting the sleeve join at the center upper back, the center stitch of each reverse stockinette stitch section between cable panels is dropped, creating an open airy garment. The stitches on either side of the dropped stitches are twisted on every round, creating a nice crisp edge on either side of each dropped stitch.
