Description
In this pair of His and Hers hand-in-hand CABLE sweaters, the designer used a bold zigzag motif and balanced it with narrow, more linear cables. The wide center panel on the V-neck vest is flanked by a zigzag pattern and smaller cables. The cardigan uses the same zigzag and smaller cables at the edges but a different cable along the center-fronts.
