Flip pancakes. Stack firewood. Plant a few more bulbs to surprise yourself next April. This easy pullover will see you through whatever the day holds in comfort and style. With a light fabric of Loft, ample sleeves, a feminine neckline, a gentle A-line form, and a curved back hem, Gable will layer as effortlessly as any sweatshirt. But it distinguishes itself with a few well-chosen details. A simple triangle of twisted rib adds interest above the front hem. The sleeves are worked with wide cuffs in twisted rib for a casual air. The knitting is entirely seamless, with the body and sleeves worked in the round and then joined to form the circular yoke. Pick a color you’ll want to wear until your Gable is ragged with years of service, as this versatile sweater is sure to be a firm favorite.

The body and sleeves are worked circularly from the lower edge to the underarms, with short row shaping to shape the lower back edge. The pieces are then joined and the yoke is worked in the round, with short row shaping to shape the back neck.
