The designer is an expert at combining disparate elements for unusual but cohesive effects. Here, she's paired the sheen of mercerized cotton with the loft of mohair, and the bulk of cables with the openwork of lace, all with outstanding results. Minimal shaping and edge treatment give this mid-weight sweater a casual, comfortable appeal.
