    • NOTES
    • Sweater is worked in one piece beg at neck.
    • Piece is worked in the rnd to leg openings, then back and underpiece are worked separately back and forth in rows to make the leg openings. When leg openings are complete, underpiece and back are rejoined and worked in the rnd to the back flap. Back flap is worked back and forth in rows.
    • Cable pattern can be worked by following written instructions or Chart. When working in rnds, follow instructions for Cable pattern worked in rnds or read all rows of Chart from right to left. When working in rows, follow instructions for Cable pattern worked in rows or read RS rows of Chart from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
    • When knitting in the rnd on double pointed needles (dpns), sts need to be divided fairly evenly among 4 needles. The total number of sts may not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns. This is not a problem. Divide sts as evenly as possible to create a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.
    • To print the pattern, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).

    DIRECTIONS:

      • With smaller double pointed needles, cast on 60 (72) sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles with 15 (18) sts on each needle. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
      • Neck Ribbing
      • Work in K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds for 27 rnds.
      • Shape Sweater
      • Change to larger double pointed needles.

      • Rnd 2: Pfb, p to marker, slip marker (sm), work next rnd of Cable pattern worked in rnds to next marker, sm, p to last st, pfb – 62 (74) sts.
      • Rnd 3: P to marker, sm, work next rnd of Cable pattern worked in rnds to next marker, sm, p to end of rnd.
      • Rnd 4: Pfb, p to marker, sm, work next rnd of Cable pattern worked in rnds to next marker, sm, p to last st, pfb – 64 (76) sts.
      • Rnds 5-22 (28): Rep Rnds 3 and 4 until there are 80 (98) sts.

      • Divide for Leg Openings
      • Next Rnd: P6 (8), bind off next 6 sts for leg opening, p to marker, sm, work next rnd of Cable pattern worked in rnds to next marker, sm, p to last 12 (14) sts, place last 56 (70) sts worked onto a holder for back, bind off next 6 sts for leg opening, p to end of rnd, remove beg of rnd marker, p6 (8) sts – 12 (16) sts rem for underpiece.
      • Underpiece
      • Note: The underpiece and back are now worked separately, back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working with straight needles.
      • Beg with a WS row, work in Rev St st (p on RS, k on WS) for 9 (11) rows.
      • Place underpiece sts on a st holder.
      • Back
      • Slip the 56 (70) back sts from holder onto larger circular needle, ready to work a WS row.

      • Join Back and Underpiece
      • Next Rnd (RS): P across back sts to first marker, sm, work next rnd of Cable pattern worked in rnds, sm, p to end of back sts, cast on 6 sts, p12 (16) underpiece sts from holder, cast on 6 sts – 80 (98) sts. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle.
      • Next 11 Rnds: P to marker, sm, work next rnd of Cable pattern worked in rnds, sm, p to end of rnd.
      • Shape Back Flap

      • Cut yarn and rejoin at beg of back sts, ready to work a WS row.
      • Note: Back flap is now worked back and forth in rows.

      • Change to smaller circular needle.
      • Lower Body Ribbing
      • From RS, k30 (34) rem back flap sts, pick up and k80 (98) sts evenly spaced down side edge of back flap across underpiece and up other side of back flap – 110 (132) sts. Pm for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle.
