This intriguing and elegant, yet simple Voyager Sweater starts with 2x2 Rib hem, with a side opening. The front and back are joined and worked in the round for two (shorter), or three (longer) pattern repeats. At the armscye continue to work flat, separately for front and back. The two sides are joined at the shoulders by Kitchener stitch. The stitches for the sleeves are picked up along the armscye, start at the underarm, pick up the stitches at the front, continue at the back and join the stitches in the round. Knit the sleeves top down in the round with slight bell shape towards the bottom. The cable is done in the front and back with purl columns next to it, while the rest of the sweater is worked in stockinette stitch. A turtle neck collar of 1x1 (or 2x2) rib is worked from picked up stitches along the neck opening.
