This textured pullover uses a combination of twisted stitches and faux cables to achieve the look of a heavily cabled sweater without the usual bulk. The main “threadle” cable undulates over the front and back, while twisted-stitch ribbing on the sides gives the sweater a flattering shape. Designed to be worn with 2-3 inches of positive ease, this will be your favorite “throw it on” sweater for warmth and comfort.

The Threadle Sweater is worked bottom up––in the round until armhole bind-offs and flat thereafter. Sleeves are worked flat. The cables are CHARTED ONLY and knitters must be able to stay in pattern while increasing and decreasing.

The name “threadle” comes from a dog agility maneuver, in which the dog must thread their way between two obstacles. The dog’s path resembles the main cable pattern as it weaves back and forth.
