Women’s Sweater with 3/4 Sleeve -free knitting pattern
THIS NEAT top by Faina Goberstein is knitted in the round from the bottom up, with a Celtic-inspired cable panel along the centre front, as well as waist shaping for a flattering silhouette. The sleeves and body are joined at the yoke and worked in a single piece to the neck, while the sleeve cables continue into the yoke for an interesting design feature. A portion of the front cable is repeated on the back of the yoke for a tattoo-like ‘surprise’.
