As we talk with knitters, we hear over and over the frustrations of getting a sweater to fit. We designed this pattern with that in mind. The A-Line silhouette and a fitted bodice with set-in sleeves accommodates many body shapes. The sweater is knitted in pieces from the bottom up and sewn together. Reverse stockinette between the linear cable pattern insures a nice drape to the fabric.
