INTRODUCTION

Assemblance

Piquant

Come on a journey of cable crossing! Is there anything better than wool and traveling stitches to carry us through the fall season? Assemblance combines basic cables with a graphic pattern to create a sweater that's fun to wear and a blast to knit. The sleeves are extra long to give a slouchy feel, and the body is slightly cropped. If you prefer a longer length, simply add more length to the ribbing before beginning the cable crosses.

PATTERN NOTES

[Knitty's list of standard abbreviations and techniques can be found here.]

Each size has its own chart for the front. Due to the large nature of the charts, the Right Front and Left Front have been separated. On RS rows, begin by following the Left Front chart and continue with the Right Front chart. On WS rows, begin by following the Right Front chart and continue with the Left Front chart.
Please note: The very last/leftmost stitch of Row 1 on the Left Front chart is also the very first/rightmost stitch on the Right Front chart.
