The sweater is a top down seamlessly knitted man henley sweater, with some unique details like herringbone stripes in contrasting color in hems and button band, stylish buttons of your choice, and masculine cabling knitted at the back of the sweater, which is an answer to both his needs to have a “simple” sweater without too much decoration, and hers needs to knit a sweater which is nice and interesting knitting journey.

Construction of the sweater is a variation of the Contiguous method by SusieM, where instead of narrow seam on the shoulders stitches are added next to wide panels situated on shoulders and worked in stockinette stitch.

Please note that the pattern contains the charted version of the cable pattern only
