Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • cables

Pattern Description:

A bold cable pattern livens up a classic silhouette in the Over the Fence pullover. Simple stockinette sleeves are a good textural contrast to the large-scale cable pattern of the body. A fairly wide neckline means that layering is easy! Throw the sweater on over a button down shirt and you've got a sophisticated (and warm!) outfit for the winter.

Over the Fence (so named because, well, the cables look like a fence) is a bottom-up raglan with a wide boat neck. The only seams are very small ones at the underarms.
