Cable Panel Unisex Pullover
This casual unisex raglan sleeved pullover features the same Celtic-style cable used in our Beanie patterns, incorporated as a central panel on the front. The hem and cuffs are in rib.
We recommend using one of our DK yarns such as Pure Blended Ryeland DK: Limited Edition & Rare DK – Blacker Yarns
This is a good pattern for someone wanting to do a pullover in the round with a bit of interest, but well short of full-on aran!
The pullover is knitted in the round from the bottom up. Most of the pullover is knitted in stocking stitch with a simple cable panel in the centre front. Brief instructions are also given for knitting the garment flat if preferred.
The body of the pullover can be easily lengthened or shortened by knitting more or fewer repeats of the cable pattern.
The unshaped design is intended to be loose and casual, so for a more fitted garment use a smaller size and for a looser one use a larger size than your normal one.Read More
