Worked left to right from a provisional cast on, this pullover showcases a single bold cable flanked by delicate eyelets. The gracefully curved back hem and shoulders are shaped as you knit the body, and the three-quarter length sleeves are worked flat and top-down from live stitches. After joining the two sides and seaming the sleeves, the ribbed hem is then picked up and knit to complete the garment. Narrow faux saddles at the shoulders, a welt detail at the neckline, and raw sleeve cuffs lend casual structure, while generous positive ease lets this pullover pair perfectly with slim pants for contemporary comfort.
