The gentle cable wave flows down the front and back of this sweater to create a beautiful central panel. The construction of this sweater is a little bit different and will keep you guessing every step of the way!
You begin with the central panels and then pick up stitches on the right side so that you can work the front and back in one long piece. You’ll then join the side seam and continue the sleeve right down to the cuff. Once the right side is done, the left is finished in exactly the same way on the other side.
