The original name of this pattern was Bold...with Undertones of Chocolate... because that's how I like my coffee. But it works for beer, too. Coffee or beer...you decide!
Bold is a comfy cropped sweater with fun texture detail on the extra-long cuffs. It is knit top-down with the stockinette side out on large needles. The jumbo cables are reversible, which means that if you weave the ends in carefully, you will have a completely reversible garment.
The sweater is written with a couple of inches of positive ease. Actual measurements are 34.25, 38.25, 42.25, 48.25, and 52.25 inches (87, 97, 107, 123, and 133 cm) at bust.
Yarn: 800-1,225 yards (735-1,125 m) Aran weight yarn.
Needles: US 9 (5.5 mm) DPNs and circular needles.
US 8 (5.0 mm) DPNs and circular needles.
The cable is a 24 round repeat and the sweater ends with a round 24 of the cable, so plan on extra yarn if you want to make a longer sweater.
