We’re huge fans of cables, and when we spotted Julie Hoover’s Hatcher, we cast on right away! (Ours is going to be gold, a gorgeously rich mustard-y color that has been super popular this winter season!)
The pattern sample uses a dk-weight yarn, but gauge is what really matters! Our Gems Worsted works up beautifully at 5 sts/inch and it’s stitch definition makes it a fabulous choice for cables. Plus, it’s machine washable and pill-resistant 100% merino. What more could you ask for?

Hatcher contains an addendum for making it 3/4 sleeve or full-sleeve… or you can knit it as pictured. Depending on your climate, you either have a fabulous winter sweater or the perfect early-spring garment!
