Tramline Cable Pullover

I love the large cable in this sweater, so when I designed the smaller cable, I took it from the center portion of the larger cable. I added the Rice Stitch panels for contrast, and to frame the cables. I love the results!

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

The cable patterns are presented in charted format.
