At every festival, there are men wearing stunning handmade sweaters to fend off the early morning chill in barns and on the fairgrounds. The ingenious pattern of this mock cable sweater changes all the standard assumptions about crochet. It’s a gorgeous crocheted creation with just a touch of knitted ribbing, made with a wool and alpaca blend that offers a warm, hardwearing and handsome appeal. Ideal for a casual evening out or those early mornings in the Rockies, these mock cables are tempting enough that you can bet there will be a lot of women borrowing this new wardrobe classic…or making it for themselves.
