Inspired by the Colorado elk bugling season with its characteristic rutting calls of the bulls and beautiful fall colors in the Rocky Mountains, this cozy warm Staghorn sweater with a squishy slip stitch waffle pattern was created to head outside and enjoy the outdoors.

Staghorn cables are placed along the body’s sides and in a contrasting color (using Intarsia) along the outside of the sleeves continuing into a saddle shoulder, as well as a decorative front zipper cable panel. The cables begin within the bottom and sleeve ribbing and are continued into the neck ribbing. Intermittent, simple short-rows are worked to address different row gauges between the waffle and cable patterns. The sweater is worked flat in pieces and seamed.
