Item details

This crochet pattern is a wonderful, simple cable design for a pullover sweater. It features three cables down the center of the sweater, and one down each sleeve. A practical, and simple sweater that works on both men and women. So named for the place where Peter grew up, since he was the first one I made this sweater for. This pattern features a full photo tutorial with size options for S [M, L, XL]
Difficulty Level: Intermediate
Yarn: For the pattern pictured I used Sheepaca Yarn in Shacklewell Grey from Wool and the Gang.
**If you want your cables to really show up I would actually use a solid color yarn instead of a speckled one. I used 7 skeins for a medium
Weight category: DK, or light worsted (14 wpi)
**This pattern also works with worsted weight yarn
Length: 1,530 – 2,040 yards , or 1,398 - 1,900 meters  
Hook: I used 5.5 mm or I-9 hook, though 4.5 or 5 mm will also look good – just keep to measurements! (I would advise against going bigger with this weight yarn)

Average review
Great pattern. If you have experience with crochet cables, you will find this one quite easy. Worked up quickly and turned out quite nice.
