About the Design:
This sweater has a fitted silhouette, with just enough ease to fit over a blouse or top. I wanted it to look equally as good with jeans on the weekend, as it would with a skirt or slacks at work.

I knit it in Peace Fleece worsted weight, which is a 70% American and Russian wool blend with 30% mohair. Peace Fleece comes in wonderful heather shades.

The sleeves are square-inset, for less underarm bulk, yet are easy to work. Finishing is minimal. The edgings are single crocheted with slip stitch, which do not detract from the cables and creates a clean line. The back of the neck is shaped with short rows, and the large collar sits away from the neck for stylish comfort.

Sizes: S / M / L / XL

Finished Chest: 39 / 42 / 45 / 48″
Finished Length: 21 / 21.5 / 22.75 / 23.5″

Yarn: Peace Fleece worsted weight, 70% American and Russian wool / 30% mohair, 200 yds / 4 oz hanks: 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 hanks Samantha-Katia Pink

Gauge: 16 sts and 22 rows = 4″ (10 cm) in St st and 4.66 sts and 6 rows = 1″ (2.5 cm) over cable pattern using size 9 (5.5 mm) ndls, or size to give gauge (1 patt rep of 14 sts is 3″ wide). To save time, take time to check gauge.

Substitute Yarn Wt: Heavy Worsted

Skill Level: Intermediate

Happy Knitting!
