This cozy cabled pullover is truly lush. Elaborate cables pop as an allover pattern, while a generous cowl neck creates practical elegance. Use a yarn like Berroco Ultra Alpaca for warmth, stitch definition, and a very subtle halo. The sweater is worked in pieces, resulting in seams that offer stability and allow for more portable knitting. Pair your masterpiece with jeans for winter farm chores or a tulle skirt for a holiday party.
