The special thing about Linda: The cables actually only look like cables. However, the cable pattern is worked without any cable needle, you only have to pull up long loops from a stitch with your knitting needle. This cable pattern is combined with two different ribbing patterns.

Fronts and back of the cardigan are worked in single pieces and sewn together afterwards. The sleeves are worked in the round from the top down directly into the armholes.

The pattern contains instructions for sizes XS (S/M/L/XL/XXL)

Bust circumference of finished cardigan:
38 (41/43/45/47/49) inches

22 sts and 28 rows = 10 x 10 cm in cable pattern
