Description

“I really liked the dimension of this oversized pleated cable,” says Angela Hahn of the French Braid Pullover. Low-relief cables take on a strong, chiseled look in a rustic undyed organic wool. Finish the project neatly, and the entire sweater could be worn inside out for a different, softer texture.
