This pattern was designed as part of The Authentic Collection, a handful of patterns designed with my heart and my origins in mind ❤️

Watch the Collection’s preview here.

Classic, dreamy cables, modern look, comfortable feel. This pattern is worked seamlessly from the top down. It starts at the shoulders: you work the back first and then the fronts. When you reach the armholes, everything is joined and worked in one piece. The stars are the pockets, integrated with the bottom band.
The sleeves are also knitted seamlessly in the round. Stitches are then picked up for the collar band achieving it’s shawl shape with the use of short rows.
