Pam Allen likes to contrast knitted textures with smooth stockinette. In her raglan pullover, a sleek bodice and sleeves flow into a yoke of delicate cables. The cable patterns - a two-stitch twist alternating with a seven-stitch wheat ear - are more etched than sculptural. They add decoration without bulk. Wear the yoke as shown, or slide it down to reveal a little shoulder.
