If you love knitting cables, you will really enjoy the Celtic Swoncho! The swoncho is knit in raglan fashion, with increases adjacent to each raglan cable until the sleeve separation. The front and back are worked in an allover cable pattern that gets larger for the length of the swoncho. The sides are worked in Moss Stitch, which gets larger to the sleeve separation, but begins getting smaller after the sleeve separation so that there is no change in circumference after the sleeve separation.
The end result is a comfy, cabley swoncho that will become one of your favorite wardrobe items.
