This intriguing and elegant, yet simple Voyager Sweater starts with 2×2 Rib hem, with a side opening. The front and back are joined and worked in the round. The cable is done in the front and back with purl columns next to it, while the rest of the sweater is worked in stockinette stitch. A turtleneck collar of 1×1 (or 2×2) rib is worked from picked up stitches along the neck opening.
In January last year, I started to make sketches for the Voyager Sweater. Originally I created six sizes. Then I decided to make additional sizing to make it available for more variety of knitters. The final pattern is available in twelve sizes. The sweater has two length sizes, and the sleeves are also possible to customize.
This is my first knitting pattern for a sweater in 12 sizes. It has been a long journey, but the results are satisfying. The pattern went through several TE readings and I have to say that my collaboration with Maggie of Midnight Purl has been fabulous. Here is the link to her website.
