Cable and Rib Turtleneck

Because the cable and rib pattern is very easy to memorize, this sweater is a great one to choose if you want to work on your cabling technique, or learn how to cable without a needle. It’s such a simple stitch pattern, and yet the result is stunning, particularly with the row of Ridge Stitches setting off the ribbing from the body, sleeves and neck.

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

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