Evolving is a delicately cabled knit, featuring cabled textures throughout the yoke and additional cabling at the sides of the body and above the sleeve cuffs.
The name “Evolving” is inspired by the cabled textures, which grow in size and complexity as the yoke progresses.

The wearer is 5’10” / 178 cm with a 37” / 92.5 cm chest circumference. The sample has been worked in size L, giving the wearer 7.25” / 18 cm of positive ease at the chest. To accommodate the wearer’s height, body and sleeve lengths have been increased by 1” / 2.5 cm each.

This garment is worked top-down, in the round. Short row shaping is incorporated into the neckband to optimise fit without compromising the cable pattern that follows. The majority of the yoke features cablework pattern. Once the yoke is completed, stitches are separated into body and sleeves, which are each worked separately and in the round. Additional, optional short row shaping can be worked into the upper body if desired.

For the cablework, all cable patterns are both written in full and charted.

This garment is graded into sizes XS (S, M, L, XL) (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL). Recommended positive ease is 2-8” / 5-20 cm at the chest circumference.
The following measurements are for the finished garment:
Chest Circumference: 34.25 (37.25, 41.5, 45.75, 48.5) (51.5, 57.25, 60, 65.75)“ / 85.5 (93, 103.5, 114.5, 121.5) (128.5, 143, 150, 164.5) cm.

Cablework Gauge: Using 3.25 mm / US size 3 needles, or needle size required to meet gauge, 29 stitches over 36 rounds, blocked, creates a 4x4” / 10x10 cm square.
Stockinette Gauge: Using 3.25 mm / US size 3 needles, or needle size required to meet gauge, 28 stitches over 32 rounds, blocked, creates a 4x4” / 10x10 cm square.
Neckband, waistband and cuff circumferences assume you are working 7.5 sts per 1” / 2.5 cm.
