Sideways Cabled Dolman
by Yoko Hatta
Worked left to right from a provisional cast on, this pullover showcases a single bold cable flanked by delicate eyelets. The gracefully curved back hem and shoulders are shaped as you knit the body, and the three-quarter length sleeves are worked in the round from live stitches. The ribbed hem is picked up and knit to complete the garment. Narrow faux saddles at the shoulders, a welt detail at the neckline, and raw sleeve cuffs lend casual structure, while generous positive ease lets this pullover pair perfectly with slim pants for contemporary comfort.
