Quickdraw is a chunky cabled sweater with simultaneous set-in stockinette sleeves, a crew neck, and princess shaping. First you cast on for the back, then pick up stitches for the fronts, eventually picking up the stitches for the top of the sleeve cap. Body and sleeves are worked simultaneously until the underarm, where the sleeves are put on waste yarn to be worked later, then the body is worked in the round to the end.

The cable pattern is charted and is the same for all sizes.

Modeled garment is a 34” shown on a 33” high bust and a 34” full bust.
