Construction:
The sweater is knitted form the top down. Stitches are cast on with Judy’s magic cast on. Half the stitches make up the back piece, while the other half make up the shoulder pieces and some of the neckline. The back piece is worked flat and initially with short rows. Afterwards the left and right shoulder pieces are worked, also with short rows and then increases to create the edge of the neck. The shoulder pieces are joined to create the front piece, which is then joined with the back piece to create the body. The body is worked in the round and finished with a rib edge and an Italian cast off.
Stitches are picked up along the edge of the neck, worked in rib and knitted down to create a double folded neckline. Finally, the sleeves are worked with short rows and in the round in the braided cable pattern and finished with a rib edge and an Italian cast off.
