Wavy Cable Rollneck Pullover

I love finding an interesting cable pattern and using it to create a fabric for a sweater. This pattern is deceptively easy to do – you only cable on 2 out of 12 rows. To make it even easier, the Front and Back are the same, and the neck stitches are picked up from stitch holders. The pattern includes instructions for both set-in sleeves and 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 both written and charted formats.
