Eilhart is a statement sweater with the appeal of minimalism thanks to its streamlined silhouette and use of natural, undyed wool. Marls and cables have a timeless appeal individually, but in the Eilhart pullover, these two elements are combined for a new classic. Two natural, undyed shades of Deluxe Worsted are held together to create chunky cables with a touch of smocking. The color-blocked sleeves feature a rich, autumnal hue to perfectly complement the sweater body.
Half Twisted ribbing using a single strand of yarn forms sleeves that feel lightweight and comfortable, while the denser fabric of the body ensures warmth and coziness. The final touch is the mock neck that unites the body and sleeves. We’re certain you’ll cherish this piece for years to come.

PATTERN NOTES This sweater is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. The front and back are identical. The neck edge of the front and back pieces are bound off, but the neck edge of the sleeves are placed on stitch holders to create a smooth transition from the sleeves to the neckband. Stitches for the neckband are picked up along the bound-off edges of the body and along the held sleeve stitches, then worked in the round.
Instructions for the Cable pattern vary depending on the size you are knitting. Take care to ensure you are following the correct instructions for your size. Instructions for the Cable pattern are written and charted.
