Basic Cable Pullover
Basic Cable is our sweater for Season Three of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames. Worked in the round from the bottom up, this sweater is a seamless raglan with a “basic” cable and lots of room for customization. The pattern is written in my usual seven sizes, and the cable is charted.
Over the course of our 12-week season, we will knit this pattern together. I’ve already knit Basic Cable in Malabrigo Rios, so I’ll be knitting a new pattern, Premium Cable (available at the end of this season), in Spirit Trail Fiberworks Zalti - yum! You can watch to the podcast on YouTube or listen on iTunes.
During Season Three you can get a free copy of Basic Cable by signing up for The Sweater newsletter. Subscribers will receive a coupon for a substantial discount when the season ends to save a copy in their Ravelry library.
