NOTES
• For techniques you don’t know, please visit our online knitting glossary at www.interweave.com/interweave-knitting-glossary.

• This sweater begins with the center front cable panel, which is worked from the bottom up. The left back and sleeve is knit sideways, beginning with a provisional cast-on at the center back. Stitches are picked up along the side edge of the cable panel, and work proceeds down the sleeve to the cuff. Then the right back and sleeve is worked, beginning with the provisional cast-on edge at center back.

Errata: in the printed edition only, there is a missing cable symbol in row 85 of chart B, stitches 25-28 should be 2 over 2 left leaning (like row 53, stitches 17-20). Same thing in chart A, row 85 stitches 23-26, 2 over 2 right leaning (like row 53, stitches 31-34).
