Fairway Cable Jacket
This pattern is also available in the eBook, Knitting Like a Professor. You can read more about the eBook on my blog, knittyprofessors.com.
This is a top-down raglan cardigan full of cables and bobbles, knit (mostly) all in one piece. (The collar is picked up and knit last.) You need five big pretty buttons.
Any worsted weight yarn will do: Cascade 220, Patons, Fisherman’s Wool, etc.
