This sweater has it all: a comfortable fit that is also elegant… cables, lace, exciting construction.
Worked in a worsted weight yarn, it will knit up so much faster than you think!
It is built seamlessly in multiple directions and assembled as you work. To make things easy and clear, I have divided the instructions into sections, and I have also added a few schematics for you to understand what piece you will be working each time.

Printing directions: if you prefer to read cables/lace from Charts, print only pages 1-14.
If you prefer written directions, print pages 1-11 and 15-16.
