Captivating cables!! Owen is so interesting to knit with it’s contiguous top down construction and disappearing and appearing cables. The construction is a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. The cables are based on cables from Norah Gaughan’s book Knitted Cable Sourcebook.

Notes: This pullover is constructed from the top down in one piece with saddles, using the contiguous method. There is a lot going on in the beginning, but as you proceed the increases slow down. There are notes within the pattern to guide you. There is no body shaping past the armholes, but the cables do add some natural shaping. The length of the body and sleeves is adjustable.
