Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “The designer loves how the simple texture of knit and purl patterns, and softly spun, thick-and-thin yarns like this one create another dimension of texture. The cable might look complex, but it isn’t! It is an unusual cable that has one strand worked in seed stitch and the other worked in stockinette. Every woman should have this cardigan in her cedar chest.”
