An uncomplicated but thoroughly sophisticated cabled pullover, Piedmont is a pleasure to wear. The A-line body is knit circularly from hem to underarms, then worked flat with drop-shoulder shaping. The sleeves are worked circularly beginning with the cuff, then sewn into the garment so that the cables are all going the same direction. The turned-hem neckline adds the perfect finishing touch.
