Cable and Eyelet Pullover

I was editing a book of stitch patterns for a friend, and she lent me a number of Japanese stitch pattern books to look through. When I came across the cable and eyelet pattern used here, I knew I had to design a sweater around it. It’s really a pretty simple cable pattern, and the results are lovely!

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together.

The cable and eyelet pattern is presented in both written and charted formats.
