Description
This softly colored cable pullover is a lovely example of how to marry garment shaping to stitch structure. Instead of preserving the integrity of her cable panels by working increases and decreases in the adjacent background stitches, the designer deliberately plays with the stitches within the cable to shape the body and yoke.
