A large winglike cable unfolds between mirrored ribs and rope cables in the center. The reverse-stockinette background is treated as a fourth pattern of its own, balancing texture elements with plenty of negative space. Simple set-in sleeves, waist shaping, and a wide scoop neckline keep the sweater light and streamlined.
