This unisex sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up. When sleeves are joined to body, then work will change to back-and forth to create the shawl collar and finish working the sleeves and upper body shaping. The sweater features several different cabled patterns and a ribbed shawl collar. Inspired by the 1930s designer, Cecil Beaton, it’s a wonderfully cozy garment.

The sample is shown in size 36” finished bust with 0” of ease.

You will need approximately 800 (800, 1000, 1000, 1200, 1400, 1400) yards of a worsted weight yarn to complete this project as written.
