Setting out to design the perfect sweater to wear on a getaway weekend at a New England B&B, Kathy Zimmerman came upwith this lovely, body-skimming pullover. A master in cable variations, Kathy has staggered cables, some embellished with garter-stitch centers, in a central panel. Vertical ribs framing the panel add dimension and texture to the rest of the sweater, and draw it in slightly for a closer fit. Trimming the edges in a contrast color provides a little punch.

Beautiful Sweater!
I love this pattern! And all my friends love it too! I showed them just the front part and they, like me, are in love with it! It is exactly what you see in the picture but, more beautiful when you see the cables closely. The pattern is easy to follow but a little tricky, to me (not a very experienced knitter)at the collar. The back I chose not to knit the cables so, I'm knitting like the sleaves - just simple knit/purl stripes. I'm still in the middle of the sweater and I'm working fast to see it finished! But, unfortunately, I'll be able to wear it only in July 2012. I live in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil and it's very hot here now. I'll wait! Review by Elizabeth Nunes (Posted on 11/11/2011)
Bed & Breakfast Pullover (EP0025)
I knit this with Paton's Classic wool (jade heather with blue edges) which made for a lovely garment. It is only for very cold days though here in Houston, TX as is a very warm sweater. I wore it inside on some cold days and had to take it off after awhile and put on a less warm sweater. The chart and its symbols was difficult to read, for me anyway, so I hand wrote out the chart line by line with standard knitting abbreviations. It took a little time; but if you're not in a big hurry, it is worth it to not be confused, and then you can knit right along row after row. Review by Kathleen Hall (Posted on 6/26/2011)
Wonderful Pullover
This pattern was easy to follow as was the chart. I knit is with yarn other than was suggested. The sweater has awesome drape and is true to the given dimensions. I will use this pattern again and again. Review by lori deVries (Posted on 12/7/2010)

Bed and Breakfast Pullover
The pullover is lovely and I love to do cables, but when the pattern is downloaded the shading on the cable legend and the pattern itself was impossible to read. This made knitting a chore. Review by Jurhee Blagaich (Posted on 6/15/2010)
