Rich texture and faux cables make this pullover a charming wardrobe staple. Short single crochets, back-loop-only single crochets and double crochets, worked vertically, create a stunning and innovative stitch pattern that will turn heads and have your craft buddies wondering how you did it. Intermediate skills are required.

I betcha I can lengthen the cables to cover my very long waist, right?

I just finished this pattern yesterday.  I love the sweater.  Please note, it is a litte short.  It hits me right at the hip, and I am short waisted.  The arms fit perfectly and the shoulders are a good fit too. If you want it longer, I would suggest adding a 5 to 10 more single crochets to the body.   It fits true to size and I can't wait to wear it.
