Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, increase, decrease, pick up stitches, cable

Pattern Description:

I love this cable pattern and how the center diamond motif stands out so well from the Reverse Stockinette stitch panels on either side of it. The back center panel is worked all in Moss Stitch, and the sleeves have a center Moss Stitch panel as well.

The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.

Gauge:

20 sts and 28 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Rev St st
20 sts and 28 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Moss st

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • XXS (28.5") to 6X (68")

Materials:

  • 975-1850 yards worsted weight yarn
  • size 7 (4.5 mm) needles

You Will Also Need:

  • cable needle; stitch markers

About the designer

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.
