Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “When this wonderful, supple merino became available in a worsted weight, the designer just knew that she had to make something with it. Working in a chilly office, she needed something to warm stockinged legs - kismet! Subtle increases give just enough ease, and the assurance of sunshiny golden cables under the desk is enough to fortify against even the dreariest late-winter day.”
