Big yarn makes a bold statement in a splendidly cabled cape. Worked sideways in Rowan’s glimmering Big Wool Silk, it features a mammoth showpiece braided cable, flanked by smaller cables and bobbles, on a ground of reverse stockinette. Double ribbing and garter trim the edges, while short rows shape the shoulders. The asymmetrical button closure and sweeping single-rib collar add drama, making for an altogether striking design.

Colorway used is #710 verse
