Cable Panel Pullover

This is an easy cable to work, but the results are stunning! The cable is set off nicely by a panel of Reverse Stockinette stitch, and the cable strands travel easily up the V-neck and around to the center of the back neck, which means minimal neck finishing! Instructions are given for both short or 3/4-length sleeves, but you can work to whatever length you prefer.

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together. The ribbed pattern along the front neck edges is continued as a band across the back neck, then sewn in place.

The cable panel is presented in written format.
