Knitting pattern in French for an oversized sweater with a horizontal cable pattern in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL) 3XL



The sweater is knitted in 4 parts: the back and front part, the right and left sleeve. In contrast to common sweater constructions, all parts are rotated through 90 degrees before they are sewn together. The cables are now horizontal over body and sleeves instead of vertical. This means, the stitch counting gives the length of the sweater and the row counting the width. The shoulder shaping for back and front parts and the round neck takes place with increases and decreases after the first st of a row. The shaping for the round neck is only worked when knitting the front part but left out for the back part. The sleeves are knitted without any shaping, but are again rotated through 90 degrees before they are attached to the body. In the end, the side seams of all parts are closed with the mattress stitch and you are going to attach a hem in 2x1 ribbing to the body and the sleeves and as well as a

collar in 2x1 ribbing the round neck.

The fit of the sweater is oversized due to the great positive ease. This creates a cool, relaxed and modern look for a classic cable pattern, which is still very comfortable to wear, but also goes perfectly with high waisted jeans, trousers and skirts.
