I love finding an interesting cable pattern and using it to create a fabric for a sweater. This pattern is deceptively easy to do - you only cable on 2 out of 12 rows. To make it even easier, the Front and Back are the same, and the neck stitches are picked up from stitch holders. The pattern includes instructions for both set-in sleeves and the dropped shoulders pictured in the model.
The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 4 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.
30 sts and 23 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Wavy Cable Pattern, using larger needles
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
