Foster began with an idea for combining asymmetry,cables, and top-down knitting. Three thingsthat I enjoy quite a lot. Add the yarn and knitting this sweater was nothing but love!

Options are included for a right side opening sweater (option 1) as the sample pictured, or left opening (option 2). Pattern also includes instructions for a shaped or non-shaped waist. Sample size is 36 worn with about 2 inches of positive ease.

Also: Springtree Road yarns is offering to dye up sweater quantities to order if you would like to knit this in the yarn specified. Info is here!
