Knitting pattern in English for a sweater with an eye-catching pattern consisting of classic stripes, cables and crochet waves in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL) 3XL | 4XL | 5XL.

 

Structure:
The sweater is worked in four parts back and forth in rows in a striped pattern and a cable pattern with crochet waves: first, the back part is worked. You starr with the hem in CC 3. Then, the back panel is worked by in reverse stockinette stitch by alternating CC 1 and CC 2. Afterwards, the front part is worked in the same alternating striped pattern and with a cable pattern creating a “wave-look”. Additionally, there are decreases to shape the shoulders and the round neck. The sleeves are worked similar to the front part – but with some increases after working the cuffs.
Last but not least, the highlight of the design is added: vertical lines are crocheted onto the cable pattern creating a wave pattern over the front and both sleeves.

The fit of the sweater is close to the actual bust circumference with a little positive ease. If you are in between two sizes, choose the larger size. The length is relatively short and the sleeves are long without much shaping.
