This will be the last one for a while!
I finished this up in the middle of Winter and it quickly became one of those sweaters that could do no wrong!
Pattern: Green Gable, Pattern #28 from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2008.
Needles: 7mm Knitpicks and DPNs for the sleeves. I didn’t bother going down to a 6mm or 6.5mm for the hems and cuffs.
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky, 7.5 skeins for the 36 1/2″ size.
As you can see, it was the back and sleeve detail that really caught my interest. The shape of the hood was also interesting to knit – more like a sock with some short rows.
The sleeve cabling is very similar to that on the back and continues right up over the shoulders. I really like the neckline, too, as it provides the ventilation you sometimes need in such a heavy jumper.
Overall the pattern was fairly straight forward to work from, despite a few blatant errors in the cable chart. If you’re looking for a quick knit with a good amount of interest, this is definitely it. I think it would work quite nicely without the hood as well.
