The silhouette of this sweater couldn’t be simpler, but it’s the cable detail that’s the real feature. This cozy cocoon is inspired by an old pilled sweater a friend gave me that quickly became my favorite. I’ve made a few modifications to it, but the basic idea is the same. Working in the horizontal bar creates a lovely ribbed pattern on the fabric, and the cable keeps the work engaging.

Notions: Tapestry Needle

Notes: Piece has natural bias that will straighten out during blocking. Check your stitch count from time to time.

Skip the stitches behind the post stitches unless otherwise noted.
