Knitted from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, Tullamore is a classic cardigan with lovely, intricate cable details. The ability to cable without a cable needle is a real boon for this pattern, but you’ll do just fine with a needle if that’s your preference. Each piece has its own chart, making it easy to take just one piece of Tullamore on the road with you- something that’s hard to do with a top-down sweater!

Skills needed: Long tail cast on, cabling with or without a cable needle, increases and decreases, seaming, picking up stitches.

Finished full bust:
37 (40, 43, 46, 49, 52) inches.
To be worn with 1-4 inches of positive ease. Shown in size 40 with approximately 3 inches of positive ease.

A note on yarn choice: I found this particular lot of Classy to be thinner than normal- more like a DK than a worsted. Gauge for this pattern is 23 stitches over 4 inches in stockinette, which is not a normal worsted gauge, so please take the time to make a gauge swatch.

Yarn requirements: Dream in Color Classy; (100% Merino; 250yd/229m per 113 g skein); Color: Amber Glass; 5 (6, 6, 7, 7, 8) skeins
