Wonderfully warm on winter mornings as it may be, this knee-length knitted robe in Shelter is too beautiful to confine to the house. A symphony of extravagant cables demands public appreciation. On top of its ornate motifs, Aspen boasts a full array of perfect details: a large shawl collar shaped with short rows, set-in sleeves, generous pockets, a ribbed belt and belt loops. Subtle A-line shaping allows for easy movement within a trim silhouette. This robe is a master class in cable knitting; choose a light-colored yarn to best display your work.
