Front and back

The sweater is knitted in the round in one piece up to the armholes. Using the larger circular needle cast on 84(88)96(104)108(116) sts. Place a marker at the beginning of the round. Work ribbing in the round for 5 cm.

Switch to stockinette st and on the front begin the cable pattern on row 1 of the chart: work 8(9)11(13)14(16) sts in stockinette st, work the 26 st cable pattern, work stockinette st to end of round. Work rows 2–8 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 1–8.

When the piece measures 20(20)20(25)25(25) cm and you have last worked an odd-numbered row of the chart, divide the sts into two groups for the armholes. Work 8(9)11(13)14(16) sts in stockinette st, work the 26 st pattern, work 8(9)11(13)14(16) sts in stockinette st. Turn work and leave the remaining 42(44)48(52)54(58) back sts on hold on a piece of yarn.


Top front

Work flat with the 42(44)48(52)54(58) front sts. Resume the 26 st cable pattern in the middle while working 8(9)11(13)14(16) sts at the sides in stockinette st.

When the armhole measures 20(20)25(25)30(30) cm, on a RS row k8(9)11(13)14(16), work the next 20(20)21(21)22(22) sts following the next row on the chart, leave the previous 14(14)16(16)18(18) sts on hold for the neckline, work the last 6(6)5(5)4(4) sts of the cable pattern and k8(9)11(13)14(16). Leave the 14(15)16(18)18(20) sts on the left on hold. Continue with the 14(15)16(18)18(20) shoulder sts on the right. On every RS row bind off 3x1 st at the neckline edge. Then bind off the remaining 11(12)13(15)15(17) sts.

Place the left shoulder sts onto the needles and work the WS row first. On every WS row bind off 3x1 st at the neckline edge. When you have the same number of rows as on the other side, bind off the remaining 11(12)13(15)15(17) sts.



Place the 42(44)48(52)54(58) back sts on the needles. Work stockinette st flat until the armhole measures 23(23)28(28)33(33) cm.

On the next RS row k31(32)35(37)39(41), leave the previous 20(20)22(22)24(24) sts on hold for the neckline, work to end.

With the 11(12)13(15)15(17) sts of the left shoulder purl the WS row. On the RS row, bind off.

Place the right shoulder sts on the needles and purl the WS row, then bind off on the RS row.

Sew or stitch the shoulder seams.



Work in the round starting from the armholes (see pattern for direction of knitting). Using the larger 40 cm circular needle, pick up sts from the armhole. Start at the bottom and pick up 20(20)24(24)28(28) sts from both edges = 40(40)48(48)56(56) sts. Work stockinette st in the round.

When the sleeve measures 35(35)35(40)40(40) cm, on the next round evenly decrease 6(6)8(8)12(12) sts = 34(34)40(40)44(44) sts.

Work 2 rounds in stockinette st, then evenly decrease 8(8)10(10)12(12) sts on the next round = 26(26)30(30)32(32) sts.

Switch to the 10 mm double-pointed needles and work ribbing in the round for 5 cm. Bind off in pattern.

Knit the other sleeve in the same manner.



Pin to measurements and steam lightly.

Neckline edge: Using the smaller circular needle, pick up and knit 2 sts from the right back neckline, place the 20(20)22(22)24(24) sts you left on hold back on the needle, then pick up 2 sts from the left back neckline. Pick up and knit 4 sts from the left front neckline, place the 14(14)16(16)18(18) sts on hold back on the needle, then pick up 4 sts from the right front neckline = 46(46)50(50)54(54) sts. Work 3 cm of ribbing in the round, then loosely bind off in pattern.
