Classic cables alternate with openwork in this jacket. Worked in separate pieces, the pattern creates a self-scalloping lower edge. The short, set-in sleeves are finished with reverse single crochet, as is the body and small, stand-up collar.

Ahoy May-Tee

5H9A6852

This sweater is a lot of fun to knit! It begins by knitting the cable panel sideways, then joining the two ends together to make a ring. The lower and upper bodies are picked up and knit from either side of the cable panel. There’s a little waist shaping for a flattering fit, and once the cable band is joined, it’s completely seamless.
