Pattern Notes
Starting at the hem with a rib, this basket weave and cable sweater features a classic set-in sleeve construction. The Front, Back and Sleeves are knitted separately – making this a really portable project – before being seamed together. Full photo and video tutorials are included to walk you through the finishing process for this sweater. The neckband stitches are then picked up and a simple garter stitch band is knitted on.
