Striped Grillwork Lattice Pullover

I love intertwining cable patterns like this one and I thought it would be fun to see what happens when you combine it with stripes. The stripes highlight the two main “motifs” in the pattern, and there is a single Stockinette stitch row at the beginning of each color change to keep the colors flowing without any of those purl “bumps” you sometimes get in color changes. Use the colors given here, try your own favorites, or experiment with different shades of the same color.

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

The cable patterns are presented in written format only.
