Cable Trim Pullover

I love the way the cable panels on this piece dress up the Stockinette stitch, and how the panel and shaping at the waist draw the skirt in to accentuate your waist. The skirt is worked from in the round from the waist down after pick-up, the bodice is worked in the round from the waist up, and the sleeves are worked flat, then sewn in. The collar panel is worked separately, then sewn on. If you have broad shoulders or are concerned about pulling a fitted waist over your shoulders, you can leave the seam for the waist panel unsewn to allow more ease when pulling the piece on, then fasten it with hook and eye or snap closures.

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