As my first pattern design, I present...
This is a seamless pullover knit in a chunky rib style with a centre cable. It is knit in the round, from the top down starting with the collar. Using a series of short rows, the V-neck is formed with the collar already incorporated.
Techniques required include being able to work directional increases both knit-wise and purl-wise (basic instructions are given in the abbreviations), cabling, picking up stitches, and directional decreases (basic instructions are given in the abbreviations). The short rows require careful following of the directions to ensure no gaps or holes are visible.
Size: 4-5T (approx 56-60cm chest - though, due to the rib it can fit a wide range of widths if you just adjust the length of the body and sleeves.)
Body length from shoulder: approx 42cm (16½”)
Sleeve length from shoulder: approx 44cm (17¼”)
Yarn: 10ply/worsted weight yarn (model knit in Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 10ply, colour: Leaf)
Approx yardage: 720m/787yds (model used 480g/2.5balls of yarn)
4.50mm 60cm & 30cm circular needles
5.00mm 60cm or 80cm (body) & 30cm or 100cm (sleeve) circular needles
5 stitch markers
Tapestry needle (for sewing in ends)
