Time to update your everyday V-neck cardigan with this cabled beauty! Knit it in a worsted-weight alpaca blend, as shown, for the softness and drape you’ll want to reach for every time. The yarn is also lovely to knit!

The back and fronts are knit from the bottom up starting with a neat ribbed border. The ribbing transitions into the easy-to-work cable panels that travel all the way up to the shoulders, which are shaped with short rows. A bit of ribbing at each end adds a sporty touch.

Shoulders are joined using a three-needle bind off. Then, the sleeves are picked up and knit down to the cuffs in Stockinette stitch and finished with the same ribbed edge as the body.

The front ribbed buttonbands are picked up and knit.

The sides are seamed, leaving a split hem. Nice, deep pockets are knit in.

ERRATA fixed 11/4/19: Accidentally added too much ease to sleeves for sizes M/L, 1X, and 2X ONLY. Edited pattern to make ease more similar to XS and S sizes. A new version has been uploaded and a message sent to all buyers. It’s a slight change, so you may prefer to work sleeves as originally written.
