Ribs flow easily into cables in this sweater design. To provide interest, the designer added simple details that complement the rib-and-cable pattern. A foldover band finishes the wide, scooped neck, and two knitted-in front pockets break up the fluid vertical patterning on the front. A smooth merino yarn in DK weight shows off the crisp lines of the stitch patterns.
