Kathy Zimmerman loves to tweak traditional cable patterns to come up with contemporary twists. In this case, the vertical-and-diagonal grid of the communications tower she passes everyday on her way to work suggested the placement of the classic rib and Celtic diamond motifs in this quintessential, oversized mans V-neck cardigan. The result is a comfortable sweater that is perfect for any time and any wear.
