Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2007: “A timeless ski sweater by Donna Karan New York (DKNY) goes 21st-century mod with some flared flair. This tunic-length pullover gets its distinct form from a combination of allover cables, circular yoke shaping and a ribbed mock turtleneck. The body and sleeves, knit in Lion Brand Yarn’s ‘Lion Cashmere Blend,’ are stitched in the round to the yoke, where everything is joined and knit upward circularly.”
