Cables grow like Rambling vines over an alternating stockinette- and reverse stockinette-stitch background (really a knit 8, purl 4 rib) on this beautiful turtleneck pullover. Designed so that the cables cross both right and left but in only one direction on any given row, this sweater is amazingly easy to knit. The turtleneck is intentionally tall and loose for comfort and style but can be made smaller by eliminating stitches in multiples of four and shortening.
