Simple Cable Pullover

I like this pattern very much, especially the way the cables are offset and “nest” against each other. Because of the simplicity of this pattern, you can be adventuresome and experiment with the yarn that you use. Try a variegated yarn, or maybe even two yarns that you strand together when you knit. And in case you prefer set-in sleeves, this pattern includes instructions for those as well as the dropped shoulders pictured in the model.

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

The cable pattern is presented in charted format only.
