There are few knitting feats quite as striking as a cabled saddle extending across the shoulders in an unbroken line from cuff to cuff. Even a simple twist achieves epic proportions, supported by a wide sampling of cable motifs large and small. You’re sure to feel plenty fortunate sporting this comfortable and impressive pullover.

The Lucky Gansey is a pullover sweater knit from the top down, with a wide collar and saddle shoulder. The saddle and yoke are knit flat, while the body and sleeves are knit in the round. Intended to be worn with 0 - 2” of ease excluding gussets.

This pattern is fully charted.
