Devon is a fabulous lightweigh blouson top with cable detail throughout and drop stitch detail. The shoulders and neckline are edged in moss stitch, to create a romantic, floating garment that is pretty and feminine to wear. For the more adventurous novice, Devon is a great way to understand how cables are formed as the twists are uniformly one way; for the more experienced knitter, the scariest thing is making sure you drop the right stitch to form the ladder effect!
