    Stillwater is a saddle-shouldered reverse stockinette pullover knit top-down and seamlessly with simultaneous set-in sleeves. The shoulder cable is repeated at the hem on each side. It is knit from the inside to minimize purling. Columns of twisted stitches flow from the cables down each sleeve and up the sides.

    Skills required: cabling (cables are given in both charted and written form), long-tail cast-on, backwards-loop cast-on, picking up stitches, increasing, decreasing

    Sizes available (actual garment measurement at bust, in cm): 76, (82, 91, 97), {106, 114.5, 121}. Choose a size that fits closely through the shoulders and bust. Reverse stockinette tends to puff up around the shoulders if there is too much ease

    Gauge: 19 stitches and 28 rows to 10 cm of blocked stockinette

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
