Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting flat

Pattern Description:

Reward your inner knitting goddess with the smallest scale eyelets and cables that become the most beguiling of pullovers. Begin with the gauge swatch hat which will raise your cool level with its cleverly segmented finish, then work from undulating trim to undulating trim up the cable path, always surrounded by eyelets. This is your opportunity to master cabling without a needle or stay traditional. Whichever path you take, you end with a classically elegant pullover which is its own reward.
