This knit sweater pattern is a classically shaped, cabled cardigan and is perfect for everyday wear. The Propeller and Six Strand Cables are both worked over the same number of rows making the design more visually balanced and easier to knit.
To minimize the amount of joining needed to finish the sweater, the body (front and back) is worked flat (in rows) as a single piece on long circular needles to accommodate the width.
The sleeves have a semi-raglan sleeve cap shaping.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
