Get ready for fall with a mulled blend of closely related hues: two strands of Loft held together allow you to create your own custom color for this pullover. With A-line shaping and 6-8” of ease, Carver is perfect for casual weekend wear, but its crisp patterning of twinned diamond cables on a ground of seed stitch makes this modified raglan smart enough for the office as well. Choose between a crewneck and a turtleneck in single rib to match the hem and cuffs.

One 30-stitch repeat from Cable Chart measures 5¾“ wide with Size A needle(s) and 2 strands of yarn held together, after blocking
Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated round gauge.

Needles

Size A (for Main Fabric)
One each 16” and 32” circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)

Size B (for Ribbing & Tubular Bind Off of optional Collar)
One each 16” and 32” circular needles and one set of DPNs one size smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)

Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On and Bind Off only)
One each 16” and 32” circular needles and one set of DPNs one size smaller than Size B
Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)

32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (e.g., Sleeves).

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
