Choose one color of DK weight yarn to knit this top-down sweater. The Yoke features a unique construction beginning with the collar and cabled saddle shoulder details. The front and back of the yoke are knit flat, and then you pickup sts to complete the rest of the yoke in the rnd. Garter stitch forms the majority of the sweater fabric with textured antler cables cascading down the shoulders and sleeves of the sweater. I-cord edges from the twisted ribbing for a crisp clean look.
The Sleeve, Body, & Yoke lengths are customizable.
Shown in Size 6 on a 44″ / 112cm chest circumference with about 8″ / 20cm of positive ease for a loose relaxed fit.
The sweater is designed to fit with approximately 2 – 8″ / 5 – 20cm of positive ease. I recommend selecting a size that is approximately 2 – 8″ / 5 – 20cm larger than your actual chest circumference, depending on the amount of ease you want. Yarn DK weight
