Product description

Choose your own adventure to create a custom wardrobe staple. Cadence is knit in Shelter with options for a crew neck, V-neck, or turtleneck and for varying sleeve and torso lengths. The knitting is entirely circular. All versions sport single-ribbed edge treatments, a subtle textured pattern—worked from charted or written instructions—on the torso, and stockinette sleeves with a modified raglan shoulder for a comfortable fit. We’ve knit Cadence in three of our newest hues, but this design looks great in any color.

  • Pattern specs

    CONSTRUCTION

    • The body and sleeves are worked circularly and joined at the underarms, then the yoke is worked in the round. For Version III, the neck shaping begins before joining the body and sleeves; the last few body rows are worked back and forth. While shaping the neck, the yoke is worked back and forth. The collar or neckband is picked up and worked in the round after the garment is blocked.


    GAUGE

    • 18 stitches & 32 rows/rounds = 4″ in stockinette stitch or Texture Pattern with Size A needle(s), after blocking

    Note: Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated row/round gauge. 


    NEEDLES

    Size A (for Main Fabric)

    • One each 24″ and 32″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
    • Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)


    Size B (for Ribbing)

    • One each 16″, 24″ and 32″ circular needle and one set of DPNs*, one size smaller than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)


    Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)

    • One 32″ circular needle and one set of DPNs*, one size smaller than Size B
    • Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)


    *32″ circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e., Sleeves).

    Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
