誕生日 = Tanjobi (Japanese for “Birthday”)

A classic pullover featuring a deep scoop neck with cable braided detailing, which is also reflected on the sleeve cuffs. The A-line shape and long length gives this top a tunic-style appearance. It has a relaxed fit with 3 qtr length simple sleeves - ideal for layering. A garment for all occasions!

Construction Info
The pullover is knitted flat in 2 pieces (front and back), from the bottom-up. The sleeve is picked up and knitted in the round from the top down. Neckline and sleeve cuffs braids are worked separately and sewn onto the neck edge and sleeve edges. The braids are seamlessly grafted together by means of Kitchener stitch.

Knowledge of the following technique is required: Long Tail Cast on, w&t short row shaping, cabling, 3-needle bind off, working in the round, grafting (Kitchener stitch) and seaming using mattress stitch.

Links to video tutorial help for those techniques are included in the pattern.
