In every knitter’s wardrobe we would hope to find a timeless cabled sweater, rich in texture and beautifully twisted stitches. We believe that Beckside is everything we need from a classic sweater: rich cabling, a slightly boxy shape but with all the finishing that make it crisp and easy to wear for most occasions. The deeply textured centre panel is flanked by softer, undulating cables to add something just a little soft to this otherwise unisex style. Worked in pieces from the bottom up, Beckside is seamed for a stronger, more flattering shape. The tubular cast on gives the finished garment a polished look. For a boxy fit as shown, opt for 5-10 cm (2-5 in) positive ease, Beckside would be equally flattering as a more fitted sweater with less positive ease.
