Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Winter 2008/09: “Kors softens the linear columns of the cables on his turtleneck tunic by placing the light central twist amid a curvaceous hourglass; larger cables flank that focal point. We softened the look even further by knitting the piece - worked flat, with extreme waist shaping - with two tonal strands of Be Sweet’s halo producing ‘Brushed Mohair.’ Finally, deep ribbing at the cowl elongates the lithe line.”

“Cabled tunic with wide turtleneck and shaped side seams. Designed by Michael Kors.”
