Honeycomb Cable Pullover

This relatively simple stitch pattern creates a lovely fabric. I especially love the use of purl stitches as a primary element, and the fact that the pattern works on a background of Stockinette Stitch. Knit this one up with dropped shoulders as shown, or with set-in sleeves if you prefer – instructions for both are included. Use a solid color yarn as I did, or try a heathered yarn for extra color.

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

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