Merino and silk make for a light and soft cabled woman’s pullover. Post stitches at bodice form diamond cable patterns worked from the bottom-up. Lower body is worked downward from bottom of bodice in shallow single crochet that creates a smooth texture. Sleeves are worked flat with short-row caps directly onto sleeve opening.
