Tiny Cable Pullover

I had fun pulling the elements of this sweater together. The hem is literally twisted Stockinette Stitch – such a pretty look with very little effort! The simple cable pattern, which creates a wonderful fabric, is worked again in the sleeves, over a background of garter stitch and openwork. And the neckline is simply the first few rows of the sleeve pattern. What could be easier?! Wear this piece with a skirt or over jeans – it’ll be one of your favorites!

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

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