This beautiful and original garment combines modern vanishing cables and two all time classics, garter stitch and stockinette.
The sweater is worked seamlessly from top-down and requires minimal finishing.
Upon purchase you receive 4 separate pdf-files. Fitted version (in English) is the new, updated version with better fit and neck shaping. Original version (in English, Finnish and French, each on its own pdf) has a loose fit and no neck shaping. The cables are charted in every version. I recommend printing out the chart pages for easier following.
Files are named as follows:
