I used to live in Noe Valley, a beautiful neighborhood in San Francisco that was said to be one of the sunniest of the city. While it was quite sunny at times, I would walk around the corner many mornings to grab a cup of coffee and a muffin and be met with chilly winds that certainly reminded me that I was still in San Francisco!

This sweater is exactly what I would have wanted all those San Francisco mornings.

Lots of delicious cable work to keep the knitting interesting and to add tons of textural interest to the front and back of this sweater. The sloped shoulders and poncho shaping give it a very urban feel add to its cozy chic quality.

Its long length keeps your mid-section warm and is very flattering with your skinny jeans. The deep cowl neck is super cozy.

It’s a piece that is very easy to throw on top of a long-sleeve tee just to keep the chill away as you walk around your favorite city.

This poncho vest is knit in Berocco Ultra Alpaca, which has the perfect combination of softness, warmth, and gorgeous stitch definition.

Cable patterns are both charted and written.
