Premium Cable Pullover
How about the addition of:
- waist shaping
- more complex cable patterns
- a knitted-in pocket
- striping action
- seamless saddle shoulder yoke
While knitters were working on their Basic Cable sweaters during Season Three of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames podcast, Kathleen knit this sweater to demonstrate all the techniques used in Basic Cable. If you want to knit along, the Season Three episodes will work for the Premium Cable pattern, too.
Premium Cable is also part of The Sweater Collection: Year One, which includes patterns for Solstice Cardi, Purly Pullover, Basic Cable, Premium Cable, an episode guide to all three seasons of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames podcast, as well as tips, tricks, and Kathleen’s favorite knitting techniques.
Premium Cable is worked in the round from the bottom up with a seamless saddle-shoulder yoke and integrated front pocket. Cables are provided in charted form only.
