from the designer: “This sweater was designed as an anniversary gift. Our second anniversary was approaching and the traditional gift is cotton. My husband wanted a cable knit sweater, and no other kind. My cable knowledge was very limited so existing patterns would not do. As a result, this sweater was designed.

”The pattern is a basic cable rib with a roll neck. Because of the ribbed pattern, there is no ribbing done at the hem or sleeve ends. This adds to the relaxed look and feel of the sweater. There are also a few techniques used that may seem unconventional, but all are based on a common-sense approach to knitting.“
