Brontide is a top-down cabled cardigan inspired by earthquakes and seismic events. The cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down. Short-row shaping is used to create a rounded neckline. Waist and back shaping give this hip-length cardigan a flattering hourglass shape. The reverse stockinette sleeves are also worked seamlessly. Stitches are then picked up for the ribbed button bands. Knitted in plump, worsted-weight yarn, the cables truly pop up out of the reverse stockinette background.
The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the cable panels. The pattern includes photo tutorials for German short rows and one-row buttonholes.
Gauge: 19 sts × 29 rows = 10 cm / 4" in reverse stockinette on larger needles, blocked
