A lovely cable and lace pattern graces the front of a slightly fitted, wide-necked raglan pullover, worked top-down in the round for a seamless project. Offset cables offer detailing on the back of the ¾-length sleeves, and crossed ribbing adds elegance to the hems. For a fun accent, work the hem edges in a contrast color.

This pattern is for intermediate to advanced knitters; charted instructions are used.

Special design features: boat-neck, twisted ribbing, cable accents on back of sleeves, eyelet increases, 3/4-length sleeves.

Grey sample knit in Plucky Scholar (Narragansett Gray and Vintage Icebox), 40” modeled with 2” of positive ease.
