Knitting sweaters

Cable sweater knitting pattern free

SweaterInspired by traditional fishermen’s sweaters, this design by Sarah Hatton features an attractive combination of cables and textures.

The stitch patterns are shown off beautifully by the Rowan Original Denim yarn.

This is a pure cotton that behaves like denim fabric, fading attractively with wear and washing. It comes in the Nashville blue used here, along with a paler blue and a black.

Sarah’s garment design includes neat set-in sleeves, and a high collar with a cabled ribbing pattern.
