Stretchy rib, waist shaping, fun cable panels and totally seamless construction make Valencia from Gardiner Yarn Works an engaging summer knit. Because the ribbing is so stretchy, you’ll want to knit a size with considerable negative ease for the best fit. This pullover is knit seamlessly in the round from the bottom up with raglan shaping, a scoop neck, and cap sleeves. Cable patterns are both charted and written out.
