Twist Again cabled pullover – pdf knitting pattern
You could say this is the ideal weekend pullover: relaxed, cozy and classic – but never boring! Sinuous cables are flanked by angled rib panels that move with the body, creating a flattering fit without waist shaping.
Featuring a wide V-neck, saddle shoulders and extra-long sleeves, the silhouette is modern, the mood confident. Malabrigo Dos Tierras delivers warmth, softness, perfectly rounded cables and bouncy ribbing.
The body and sleeves are worked in the round; sleeves are then seamed into the armholes and shoulders. Both charts and written instructions are provided.
To fit bust of 75 (86, 96, 106, 117, 127, 137, 147) cm / 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58) in.
Actual circumference with rib moderately relaxed: 63 (73, 80, 94, 100.5, 110, 123, 134.5) cm / 23.75 (26.5, 31, 34.75, 39.25, 42.75, 47.25, 51.75) in
Note on sizing: Because the bias rib panels are extremely elastic, I recommend choosing a size with very little or negative ease. The sample is size XL, modelled on a 112 cm / 44 in bust.
You will get the best fit by choosing your size based on the cross-shoulder measurement (see schematic).
Gauge: 22 sts x 26 rows = 10 cm / 4 in square in stocking stitch, using larger needles.
Skills used: Increasing and decreasing, working increases in rib pattern, working in the round (large and small circumferences), seaming, picking up stitches, cabling (from charts or written instructions), German short rows (tutorial included)
