The Cherrystone sweater is a seamless design worked in the round to the armholes. Cable twists are worked on both the front and back of the sweater which adds interest to the stocking stitch. The twisted cables are echoed in the raglan shaping with armhole lines following the outline of double diamonds. This sweater is both cute and cosy making it an irresistible autumn must-knit.
