The Body:
With your hook and yarn make a slip knot and chain 112 (126, 140, 154) being careful not to twist the yarn, you will join to the first chain you made making a circle.
Round 1: ch1, dc in each st around, sl st with the first dc you made. You will have 112 (126, 140, 154) dc in total.
Rounds 2-3: make 1 FPDC in each st around, join with a sl st to the first FPDC you made.
Round 4: (increase round) ch1, sc in each st around increasing 8, (10, 12, 14) st evenly around your work as you go. You will have 120, (136, 152, 168) st. Do Not Join with a slip st you will now work in the round.
Round 5: sc in the next st (place a st marker in that st to mark the beginning of the round), sc in the next st, dc in the next 6 st, *sc in the next 2 st, dc in the next 6st* repeat from *to* around until you reach the stitch marker. This round is the setup round for your cables.
For All Rounds: Make sure to move the stitch marker up from the previous round to the first sc of the new round.
Round 6: *sc in the next 2 st, (Over the next 6dc you will be working around the post only), skip the first 2st, make 1 FPTR in the next 2 st, Now is where it may get tricky you will want to make your next 2 FPTR in the 2 skipped st, you will work behind the FPTR you just made, just push them down slightly so you can get to the post of the skipped st, Make your first FPTR around the post of the first skipped st and

repeat again for the second, make 2 FPDC around the post of the next 2 dc, sc in the next 2 st* repeat from *to* around until you reach the st marker.
Round 7: sc in each st around.
Round 8: sc in the first 2 st, *(you will be skipping the sc from the previous row when working the cable over the next 6 st), FPDC around the post of the FPTR from Row 6 skipping the middle 2 st, you will FPTR around the post of the FPDC from row 6, now instead of working behind your FPTR like you did in Row 6 you will work the 2 skipped st from the front of your work, crossing over the 2 FPTR you just made, working a FPTR in the first skipped st from Row 6, make another FPTR in the next st, you will now work a sc in the 2 sc from row 5* repeat from *to* around until you reach the st marker.
Rounds 9: sc in each st around
Rounds 10-45 (10-49, 10-53,10-57): repeat rounds 6-9. If the length is not the length you wish you can always add more rounds until you reach the length you need to get before you reach your armholes. If you are wanting more of a crop top style sweater just make less rounds, either way make sure to end with a sc round before continuing.
The Back and Armhole opening:
You will no longer be working in the round.
Row 1: make a sc in the next 2 st, place your stitch marker in the second st not the first like you have done in prior rounds, continue in cable pattern working over the next 6, (7, 8, 9) cables, making 1 sc after the last cable, turn your work.
Row 2: ch1, sc in each st across until you reach the st marker making your last sc in it. Turn your work. Row 3: ch1, sc in the same sp as the ch1, work in cable pattern across until you reach the last st, sc in it.

Repeat Rows 15-16 (15-16, 19-20, 21-22)
Row 17 (17, 21, 23): (decrease row)
do not ch1, skip the first sc, and work your cable pattern across

Rows 18-20 (18-22, 22-26, 24-30): continue in pattern making sure to end with a sc row. Fasten off at the end of the last row.
Now to work on the Front of your sweater and armhole opening:
First you will want to grab 2 stitch markers, with 1 you will count 8 sc from the back armhole and place your stitch marker in the 9th st. With the second stitch marker do the same for the other side counting 8 sc from the left armhole opening and place the st marker in the 9th st.



You will be working on the stitches in between the stitch markers. You should have 7 (8, 9, 10) cables in the front. There are more on this side to give a little extra room in the front. You will now join your yarn in the st with the stitch marker, making sure to join your yarn to the right side of your armhole opening with your work right side facing you.

The Front:
Row 1: ch1, sc in the same st as the ch1, work in the cable pattern until you reach the next stitch marker, you should have just completed the cable over the 6 st, in the st marker make sc and turn your work.
Row 2: ch1 sc in each st across, turn your work.
Row 3: ch1 sc in the first st, work cable pattern over the next 6 st, *sc2tog, work cable pattern of the
next 6 st* repeat from *to* across ending with a sc in the last st, turn your work.
Row 4-12 (4-12, 4-16, 4-18): Continue in pattern except making 1sc between each cable instead of 2 as before. Turn your work.
Row 13 (13, 17, 19): (working on the neck/collar edge) ch1 and you will work the pattern over the next 2(2, 2, 3) cables end by making 1 sc after the last cable and turning your work.
Row 14 (14, 18, 20): ch1 sc in each st across, turn your work.
Row 15-20 (15-22, 19-26, 21-30): work in pattern. Working a cable row and a sc row, ending with a sc
row. Once you are done with the last row Fasten Off.
For the other side of your neck/collar count in from armhole on the left side, 16 (16, 16, 24) st, join your yarn in that st with a slip stitch you will work over 2(2, 2, 3) cables.

Repeat Rows 13-20 (13-22, 17-26, 19-30): once you complete all the rows Do Not Fasten Off. You will now slip stitch the shoulder seams together.
Shoulder Assembly:
Turn your work wrong side facing you, with your hook you will want to line up your back and front shoulder seams and slip stitch them both together, matching stitch for stitch, until you reach the end. Fasten off. Join your yarn to the other seam and repeat slip stitching those seams together. If you prefer you can sew them together.
Turn your work back to the right side, so the cables are facing you. It is now time to make our sleeves.
Sleeves:
You will join your yarn in the underarm of your sleeve opening, find the middle st and join your yarn there.



Round 1: ch1, sc in each st until you reach the side of your rows, there you will want to make 1 sc per row, keep count how many st you have when you reach your shoulder seam you will want to make the same amount of stitches along the other side until you reach the under arm st, there you will sc in each st until you reach the first sc you made, sl st with it. Make a note how many stitches you have in total so you can repeat that for the other sleeve.
Round 2: ch1, sc in the first st (place your stitch marker) sc in the next 3 st, *sc2tog, sc in the next 4st* repeat *to* all around until you reach the stitch marker.
For All Rounds: Make sure to move the stitch marker up from the previous round to the first sc of the new round.
Before you move on to Round 3 you will need to figure out where to place your cable for your sleeve. Grab 2 stitch markers and from the shoulder seam find the center, count 3 st to the left and place a stitch marker, then from that stitch marker count 6 st to the right and place a stitch marker. Now continue to Round 3.



Round 3: sc your way around until you reach the first st marker, remove the marker and make 1 dc in each of the next 6st, sc in each st until you reach the beginning of the round.
Round 4: sc until you reach the first of the 6dc, you will now start your cable pattern over the 6 st, skip the first 2 st, FPTR over the next 2 st, You will now fold your work so you can work behind to pick up the skipped st, work 1 FPTR over those 2 skipped st, FPDC in the last 2 st, sc around until you reach the first st marker.
Round 5: sc in each st until you reach the st marker.
Round 6: sc in each st until you reach the cable, working in Round 4, work 1 FPDC over the next 2 st, skip the next 2 st from round 4 and work FPTR in the last 2 st, working in front of your work, work 1 FPTR in the 2 skipped st from round 4, sc in each st until you reach the stitch marker.
Round 7: sc in each st until you reach the st marker.
Round 8-64: Repeat Rounds 4-7, once you reach your last round sl st with the first st. If you need your sleeve to be longer continue making more rounds ending with a sc round. If it its too long make less rounds ending with a sc round. But be sure if you make more or less to keep track how many rounds you did so you can repeat that for the second sleeve.
Edging Round:
Turn your work and sc in each st from the wrong side of your work, sl st with the first st and Fasten Off.

You will want to repeat the same steps for the other sleeve. Fasten off and hide all the loose tails.
Neck/Collar Edging:
With your back of your sweater facing you, you will join your yarn in the left corner of the collar.



Join your yarn with a slip stitch and ch1, sc in the same st, pick up 1 sc in each side row, then work 1 sc in each st across the front neck edge, pick up 1 sc in each side row, then work 1 sc in each st across the back-neck edge,
I did 4 rounds for my neck edge, but you do how many you want, just remember not to join in the round, use a stitch marker to mark the beginning and end of a round, once you reach the desired length for your neck edge, sl st with the first st from the round and Fasten off. Hide all loose tails and you are done my Friends!
