Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2007: “Diagonal cables - left-leaning on the body and left sleeve, right-leaning on the right sleeve - descend on Shirley Paden’s gorgeous turtleneck pullover. She knit the entire garment in the round with two strands of Naturally NZ/Fiber Trends’ ‘Me’ held together and shaped the sweater by shifting needle sizes at strategic junctures.”
