Pattern Description:

Lively is a stylish pullover with a wide upper body and skinny sleeves.
The Reverse Stockinette allows the knitter to slip into restful automatic knitting broken up by the beauty of the cables that keep things interesting. This simple, yet attractive sweater is worked top down, completely seamless with a short row section in the shoulders and two fake seam stitches on the sides.

The front and the back of this pullover are worked back and forth separately to the underarm, then joined together to work in the round in one piece. Sleeve stitches are then picked up around the armholes and worked down to the cuff. The center front cable pattern, worked over 32 sts, is introduced below the bust line and runs all the way to the hem of the body. Sleeves are worked with similar arrangement of the cables.
