The cable in this pattern reminded me of the diamond-shaped mullioned windows in Tudor-era palaces in England, like Hampton Court and Greenwich. This round-neck, raglan-sleeved cardigan has the button bands integrated as you work the body; therefore, there’s no finishing aside from weaving ends and attaching buttons.

Finished Size:
Chest 32(36, 40, 44, 48, 52) inches, sleeve circumference 12.75(13.75, 14.5, 16.25, 17, 17.75) inches, length 14(14.5, 15, 16, 16.5, 17)”

Yarn: Space Cadet Lyra (100% Superwash Merino wool, 270 yards/100), 4(4, 4, 5, 6, 6) skeins. Sample worked in That’s What She Said.

You can buy Lyra at www.spacecadetyarn.com

NOTE: Lyra is a very fat sport weight. It is closer to DK. Make sure you swatch!

US #5/3.75mm circular needle, 32 inches or longer (larger sizes may prefer a longer needle).
Set of US #5/3.75mm double pointed needles or preferred method for small circumference knitting in the round.
Or size to make gauge

Stitch markers (six of one color, four of another)
Waste yarn or stitch holders
Darning needle
Cable needle, if desired
1/2” to 5/8” buttons – wait until garment is complete to ensure proper size and number (sample shows 8, but it will depend on your length)

Gauge: 20 stitches/28 rows per 4” in stockinette stitch, worked flat, on larger needles. Ensure you use a correct needle size to make gauge in the round as well.

You’ll note in the photos that my model, Jade of Space Cadet, wears it backwards. As this doesn’t have specific bust shaping, you can, and it looks just as cute!

Please! Ensure you have the latest version! Corrections uploaded since publication with changes to the set-up, and subsequent stitch counts.
