men's wrapped
men's wrapped

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • working cables
  • provisional cast-on (explained in detail in the pattern)
  • I-cord cast-on (explained in detail)

Pattern Description:

A classical drop-shoulder pullover for men, but the assymetrical placed cable at the front and the back makes it interesting and stylish. The men(tm)s wrapped is worked top-down, starting with a provisional cast-on at the shoulder. The breast pocket is optional.

Back and front are worked seperately to the armholes and joined in the round. The stitches of the sleeves are picked and the sleeves, worked top-down, can easily be adapted to any length.

This garment is worked in one piece and seamless, apart from a little bit of sewing at the lining of the pocket.

For ease of reading and following the pattern, the text is split in 3 parts:
1. chart and written instructions for the ribbed cable on page 2
2. pattern for size S-M to M-L from page 3 to 8,
3. pattern for size L-XL to XL-XXL from page 9 to 14,

All techniques used (provisional cast-on, I-cord cast-on, ...) are explained in detail.
