A sweater with ribbed yoke and cables

This pattern has been test knitted and tech edited.
Instructons are available in English, Japanese and Korean.

Ren れん in Japanese (pronounced as “ran” in English) is the pronunciation of many kanji with different meanings. My favourite ones with beautiful imagery and attributes are 漣 (ripple) , 蓮 (lotus), 恋 (love), 憐 (compassion) and 連 (connect). I hope that you can connect with some of these words as you knit this sweater.
