Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, cables, short rows (wrap and turn), dec, slip stitch, ch, sc

Pattern Description:

This sweater has a fitted silhouette, with just enough ease to fit over a blouse or top.

I wanted it to look equally as good with jeans on the weekend, as it would with a skirt or slacks at work.

I knit it in Peace Fleece worsted weight, which is a 70% American and Russian wool blend with 30% mohair. Peace Fleece comes in wonderful heather shades.

The sleeves are square-inset, for less underarm bulk, yet are easy to work.

Finishing is minimal - the edgings are single crocheted with slip stitch, which do not detract from the cables and creates a clean line.

The back of the neck is shaped with short rows, and the large collar sits away from the neck for stylish comfort.

Gauge:

16 sts and 22 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st and 4.66 sts and 6 rows = 1" (2.5 cm) over cable pattern using size 9 (5.5 mm) ndls, or size to give gauge (1 patt rep of 14 sts is 3" wide).
