Inspired by the rule of wave reflection, the cables in this pullover “reflect” off of the edges of the center panel. A subtle pattern is formed by the use of two different stitches. Above the ribbing, all knit-four sections move from right to left, and all four-stitch mini cables move in the opposite direction, from left to right. As the cables reach the edge of the center panel, they are turned back into the center at the same angle as the approach. Soon we see that the knit-four sections are all on one side of the panel and the mini cables are all on the other. After they “hit the wall” again they mix again before separating out on opposite sides. Finally, they make their way back to their original positions and start over.“
