Beautiful and cozy cabled sweater, worked seamlessly from top down.
At the beginning, the upper body is worked back and forth until the neckline shaping is complete, then joined in the round. The body is worked in the round with increases on both sides to create a slight A-shape and the hem is shaped with short rows. The collar is worked last. The cable pattern is both charted and written and the pattern includes a photo tutorial for German short rows.
