Cable Panel Pullover

This pullover was designed with a loose, comfortable fit. It’s the perfect sweater to throw on over jeans for a hike in the woods or a lazy day at home. If you want a loose fit as shown, work a size that’s about 6″ larger than your bust measurement. For a closer fit, stay with a size that’s 2″ larger than your bust.

The pullover is worked in one piece from the bottom to the armholes, then the front and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The sleeves are worked flat from the bottom up, then sewn in.

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