Are you a fan of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames? Ready to take your sweater knitting to the next level? How about the addition of:

  • waist shaping
  • more complex cable patterns
  • a knitted-in pocket
  • striping action
  • seamless saddle shoulder yoke

All these make for a sweater that will keep your interest while you knit and make you look fabulous when worn because you’re Premium.

While knitters were working on their Basic Cable sweaters during Season Three of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames podcast, Kathleen knit this sweater to demonstrate all the techniques used in Basic Cable. If you want to knit along, the Season Three episodes will work for the Premium Cable pattern, too.

Premium Cable is also part of The Sweater Collection: Year One (to be released 15 June 2017), which includes patterns for Solstice Cardi, Purly Pullover, Basic Cable, Premium Cable, an episode guide to all three seasons of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames podcast, as well as tips, tricks, and Kathleen’s favorite knitting techniques.
