Pattern notes
This pullover is knitted from the top down, with cable panels set against a ground of stockinette on the front and back and the sleeves worked in moss stitch throughout. A few stitches are cast on, and the front neck is shaped while working back and forth. After stitches are added for the front neck, the pullover is joined to be worked in the round, and the front panels are established while shaping the sleeves and upper body with raglan increases. Sleeve caps are divided and set aside, then the body is worked in pattern to the desired length. Sleeves are picked up and worked top-down, and the ribbed neckline is finally picked up, folded over, and joined to the inside of the pullover with a three needle bind off.
