Choose your own adventure to create a custom wardrobe staple. Cadence is knit in Shelter with options for a crew neck, V-neck, or turtleneck and for varying sleeve and torso lengths. The knitting is entirely circular. All versions sport single-ribbed edge treatments, a subtle textured pattern—worked from charted or written instructions—on the torso, and stockinette sleeves with a modified raglan shoulder for a comfortable fit. We’ve knit Cadence in three of our newest hues, but this design looks great in any color.


  • Version I: 1080 (1195, 1325, 1440, 1595, 1725) yards of worsted weight wool yarn
  • Version II: 1210 (1325, 1465, 1580, 1740, 1875) yards of worsted weight wool yarn
  • Version III: 1005 (1110, 1235, 1345, 1490, 1610) yards of worsted weight wool yarn
  • If you are making Version I or II with three-quarter length sleeves, you will require 45 (55, 60, 65, 65, 75) yards fewer
  • If you are making Version III with long sleeves, you will require 45 (55, 60, 65, 65, 75) yards more
  • If you are making the optional length adjustment you will require 65 (70, 75, 80, 90, 95) yards more.

  • Version II: 9 (10, 11, 12, 13, 14) skeins

  • 18 stitches & 32 rows/rounds = 4″ in stockinette stitch or Texture Pattern with Size A needle(s), after blocking

Note: Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated row/round gauge.


Size A (for Main Fabric)

  • One each 24″ and 32″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
  • Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)

Size B (for Ribbing)

  • One each 16″, 24″ and 32″ circular needle and one set of DPNs*, one size smaller than Size A
  • Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)

  • One 32″ circular needle and one set of DPNs*, one size smaller than Size B
  • Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

*32″ circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e., Sleeves).

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
