DESCRIPTION

Ikirouta is an updated take on the classic cabled ski jumper. This top-down raglan sweater features wide cable panels on both the front and back pieces. A cozy, high turtleneck keeps you warm even in the coldest winter breezes.

Waist shaping gives this sporty sweater a slim look while the wide ribbing at the hem ensures a comfortable fit around the hips. The turtleneck, hem, and cuffs are all worked in 2x2 ribbing.

The sweater comes with two options for the ribbed sleeve cuffs. The shorter one gives that classic sportswear look. If you suffer from cold hands, snuggle up with the longer, folder cuffs with optional thumb openings.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the cable pattern.
