Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2008: “It’s natural to form an attachment to Lavold’s engaging broken-rib cardigan, with furrows of knotted cabling around the neckline and circling the lower sleeves. The sweater, in ‘Calm Wool’ by Elsebeth Lavold/KFI, allows its stockinette front bands and cuffs to roll.”

“Loose-fitting, long cardigan in faux rib with rolled reverse stockinette st and pretzel cable border.”
