Crochetist 2020 and the Ely Cathedral Pullover November 12, 2020 03:30

You may have noticed lots of crocheted cables in my recent patterns. I have a confession. I'm absolutely obsessed with them! Among the second annual volume of The Crochetist is my newest cabled crochet pattern—the Ely Cathedral Pullover.

The 2020 issue of The Crochetist is now available. It's a special annual issue, published by Interweave Crochet. It includes my Ely Cathedral Pullover pattern, as well as seven other beautiful crochet garments, such as the Alhambra Pullover (shown above) by Blazenka Simic-Boro and the Opera House Top by Jane Howorth.

The double-crochet height, lacy pattern of this sweater makes it work up relatively quickly. And the crochet cables keep it interesting. Crochet cables are an addictive and satisfying crochet technique to learn, if you're not already familiar with them.

The sample is crocheted in Wish, by Trendsetter Yarns. It's a beautiful and soft blend of organic wool and polyamide. The tweedy flecks are a subtle uplifting pop of color.

The back, front and sleeves are worked separately, then crochet-seamed together. The yoke is shaped as a raglan, making the shaping simple and easy.

There is waist shaping on the body for a flattering feminine fit. The sleeves gradually increase from the cuffs to the underarm.

For a more gender-neutral look, the waist shaping may be skipped for straight sides, and some more decreases could be worked at the neckline.
