Winter sunlight shines through the trees, dappling the newly fallen snow with patches of luminescence. This cleverly constructed sweater is a bright spot on a cold day as light and shadow intermingle to show off the cables that wrap around the torso. This sweater begins with an intricate cable panel worked on its own, with stitches picked up along each side to create the shape of the sweater. All cables are both charted and written. A photo tutorial guides the knitter through German short rows to shape both the shawl collar and sleeve caps, making this look entirely seamless. Instructions are given for buttonholes on either side of the sweater to create a versatile look for either a man or a woman. Choose a size with extra ease for a thick outer layer, then cozy up by the fire in your own Dappled cardigan.
