V-Neck Cable Pullover

This is a great sweater to wear out on a cool autumn day – I can see myself wearing it, sipping hot cocoa, at a football game. You could use your favorite bulky weight yarn rather than stranding two yarns together. Use the yarns given here for a heavy sweater, or choose a lofty yarn for a lighter weight sweater.

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together. The front neck edging is worked at the same time as the fronts, then continued until each side is long enough to reach the center back neck, and sewn in place.

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