I love the way Bavarian stitch patterns look, but I hate working cables on the wrong side of the work. I designed this cardigan using stitch patterns which resemble Bavarian stitches, but which have cabling only on the right side of the work. It’s knit at a fairly tight gauge to help make the stitches pop. Although it looks complicated, the pattern is easily memorized and goes quickly.
