For a men’s sweater, I wanted a stitch pattern that would be interesting but not overly conspicuous. I chose an all-over cable pattern worked on a stockinette background instead of the more typical reverse stockinette, yielding a subtle but texturally interesting fabric. The accent cables on each side of the neck mimic the circular design of the all-over pattern. All cable crossings are worked in a single row, resulting in 5 rest rows of stockinette between cable rows. As a result, the sweater progresses more quickly than you might expect for a piece with all-over cables.
