This nautically inspired cabled cardigan is perfect for everyday wear. The Propeller and Six Strand Cables are both worked over the same number of rows making the design more visually balanced and easier to knit.

To minimize the amount of joining needed to finish the sweater, the body (front and back) is worked flat (in rows) as a single piece on long circular needles to accommodate the width.

The sleeves have a cross between semi-raglan and modified drop shaping. The neckline edging is knit after the pieces have been joined.
