Cable and Garter Stitch Turtleneck

I love how much life this cable pattern has, and the way the garter stitch background adds texture to the pattern. The sweater is wonderfully cozy and the tight cabling at the beginning of the sweater and sleeves, and at the top of the neck gives the edges an eye-catching ripple.

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

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