Pattern Description from Lisa Lloyd Designs: “This comfortably sized pullover is a study in symmetry. A beautifully entwined center cable makes a dramatic statement. Simple rope cables stretch into the lower ribbings creating a lengthening effect. The bold cables show well in the mohair blend Lamb’s Pride shown here and will really pop in a crisp aran wool. Depending on how many center repeats are knit, two body lengths are available (the longer version is shown). The sweater is knit in the traditional way in pieces and sewn together.”

Pattern Description from A Fine Fleece: “I deliberately did not crowd the canvas with too many cables. Instead, I chose cables that entwine in unusual ways and played with the contrast of circular and rectilinear motifs because I think that certain contrasting images form a perfect balance together.”
