Skill Level: Easy-Intermediate

This loose fitting pullover achieves the look of cables without a cable needle. The body is worked in columns of textured cabled stitches and the bodice in Stockinette with a gently scooped neckline. It is worked flat from the bottom up and is both charted & written out with schematics. The pullover is designed to be loose fitting so when selecting a finished size, select one that is 4”/10cm larger than actual measurments. (If you prefer a more fitted sweater, select a size that is 1-2” larger than actual chest or hips, whichever is larger.)
