The Royal Cable Sweater is a type of raglan sweater worked from the top down in rounds. This project doesn’t require sewing at all. The elements to be done include: collar, yoke, body and sleeves.

First, work the collar in rib stitch. Next, work the yoke (the front and the sleeves in cable stitch and the back in reverse stockinette stitch). At the same time, work the raglan increases at the indicated places. The instructions will show you also how to shape the neckline with short rows. Next, divide the stitches for the body and the sleeves. After finishing the body, work the sleeves.
