Knitting pattern in English for a classic cable pattern sweater with modern highlights: cropped length, loose fit and a decorative cable pattern for the raglan lines.
The sweater is knitted top down with raglan increases. The cable pattern is all over body and sleeve and is also pictured on the raglan lines. The cable pattern is alternated with stripes in stockinette stitch. To prepare for the round neck, you knit back and forth in rows, until the front parts are joined. You continue with the increases until you have reached a certain number of sts for the sleeves, then you stop the increases for the sleeves and just continue with the increases for the body, until you have reached the total number of sts to separate the sleeves from the body. The body is finished in one piece and with a hem in 1x1 ribbed pattern with twisted knit stitches. Afterwards the sleeves are finished the same way as the body and a collar in 1x1 twisted ribbing is going to be attached to the round neck.
The fit is oversized, the length is cropped for a modern look with a classic cable design.
The sweater is knitted with two strands of yarn held together: 1 strand of Cotton Merino and 1 strand of Soft Silk Mohair.
Avaible for the sizes XS/S, M/L and XL/XXL.
