Annie Modesitt’s softly colored cable pullover is a lovely example of how to marry garment shaping to stitch structure. Instead of preserving the integrity of her cable panels by working increases and decreases in the adjacent background stitches, Annie deliberately plays with the stitches within the cable to shape the body and yoke. Waist shaping disrupts the predictable cable crossings to create a completely new stitch detail. To form the round yoke, subtle decreases diminish the cable stitches as they approach the neck.
