A pullover with set-in sleeves and delicate lace and cable design.

This pattern has been test knitted and tech edited.


This pullover in reverse Stockinette stitch has twisted ribbing on the cuffs and hem. Knit flat from the bottom, twisted cables in the centre extend from the hem to the bottom of the v-neck, frame the neck opening in front and the lace panel in the back, and are joined on the shoulders.

Cable and lace patterns are written in charts. The charts are designed to be easy to follow, to help keep track of armhole shaping while you knit those “at the same “ instructions for cables, lace and neck shaping.

The set-in sleeves are close fitting and end just above the elbow, giving the pullover a touch of elegance.

Seams and set-in sleeves ensure structure and good fit for your garment. The shoulders are sloped with short rows and seamed together after binding off. This helps to prevent the shoulders stretching out and gives a neater finish than a three needle bind off.

The hem ends just below the waist for a flattering look. It is easy to make this garment slightly shorter or longer if you wish. Since you will be knitting the garment from the bottom, it is good to study the schematics, your row gauge and make the decision from the start.

Tips for choosing yarn:
The cable design is quite subtle and delicate. The details may be lost in a yarn that is too variegated. It is a good idea to make a swatch of the cable design to check if your yarn of choice is able to achieve the definition you want.
