CONSTRUCTION OVERVIEW

Wilde is a set-in sleeve pullover worked flat in pieces from the bottom up featuring a timeless combination of simple cables and garter rib. The silhouette is based on traditional men’s pullovers but is suitable for a range of body types. Choose your size based on the finished chest measurement and the recommended ease. The cable patterns are simple and easy to memorize, and carefully-planned selvedge stitches simplify sewing the sweater together. This pattern is approachable for those who are new to cables and working sweaters in pieces.
