cabled cardigan round yoke knitted sideways free knitting pattern     cabled cardigan round yoke knitted sideways free knitting pattern it started when I found a photo of a cardigan, on a Chinese website

it took me 3 days to figure out, how they knitted this cardigan

I sure like a challenge, you know

my cables are smaller than in the photograph

with round yoke

and knitted sideways

at this point we are going to slip the right side stitches on another needle

and we have to cast on 10 stitches for the rib of the sleeve

cabled cardigan round yoke knitted sideways free knitting pattern the stitches are now on another ( spare ) needle

and the 10 stitches have been made
