Let me introduce you to Corbel! Corbel is a dropped sleeve sweater with a crew neck. It has a simple cable stitch covering the front and back with stockinette stitch on the sleeves. The hem, cuffs and neck are all 1x1 rib.

The front and back are worked flat from the bottom up. The shoulders are shaped with short rows before being joined. The sides are seamed and then stitches are picked up for each sleeve and knit in the round. There are instructions for using a Tubular Cast On and Bind Off but this is optional if you’d prefer a different method. There are also detailed instructions for all the special techniques used in the pattern!

The yarn is the gorgeous Scylfing DK from Triskelion Yarn, a gorgeous blend of British Bluefaced Leicester and Gotland. It’s beautifully woolly and rustic which softens and blooms beautifully after blocking.

Happy knitting! x
