Cable Swoncho

Cable Swoncho


Join the Cable Swoncho KAL!  The KAL begins April 18, 2021 and goes to June 30, 2021. You can join any time before the end date.


The Cable Swoncho is worked top down in the round with increases on either side of 4 2-stitch raglan sections. There is a twist to this swoncho, in fact a 45-degree twist! The raglans move 45 degrees to fall at the center back and center front, and on top of each shoulder. There are 4 cable panels, which are separated by a moss stitch section, the 2-stitch raglan, followed by a second moss stitch section. Short row shaping is used at the bottom of the Cable Swoncho to create some extra length at the back of the swoncho.


All Stitch Patterns are both charted and written out. So, feel free to use whichever you prefer or use both together. If you are new to charts, using the written instructions and the charts is a good way to introduce yourself to charts.
