Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl

Pattern Description:

The maddy laine knitting pattern, ML044 Men's Aran Fences includes instructions for a cardigan and a pullover, both featuring the folded cables and fences stitch patterns.

The cardigan features the folded cable bordering the V-neck shaping while the 'fences' lend a subtle checkered texture to the garment.

The pullover sports a three-button placket with crew neck shaping that is neatly finished with a double-thickness neckband. Both styles have drop shoulder comfort with sleeves featuring the cables and fences patterns. An aran weight yarn lends body to this pattern and if using a natural fiber, loads of durability as well.

The knitting pattern, written in both US and metric measurements, includes a schematic drawing.
