Double Chain Cable Pullover

What I like about the pattern that I chose for this sweater is that it is unusual to find Seed Stitch used as the primary element in a cable, rather than just in the background. To complement the texture of the cables, I used Seed Stitch for the cuffs, hems and neck band as well. This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together, leaving a side slit at the bottom.

The cable pattern is presented in charted format only.
