Knitting sideways opens up new possibilities. This cabled cardigan explores lateral texture and negative space, with braided horseshoe motifs playing across the body and dolman half sleeves but leaving the shoulders intriguingly accented by the calm of reverse stockinette. Details like garter stitch cuffs turned at an unexpected angle and an exposed bind-off at the center back highlight the unusual construction, while a continuous band of garter stitch makes a clean and practical finish to the fronts.
