From pattern description:
“In my design process I like to have things flow so that everything in a sweater looks complementary. I have always been interested in textures and have a large collection of ribbings. My main focus in this cardigan was the bobble. I had a bobble ribbing and changed one of the cable patterns in the body of the sweater to use the same bobble.”
