“A desire for a stylish, modern and graphic knitted jacket inspired this design. I love how crisp and clean cables look in Shelter yarn, and wanted to explore the idea of working cables that never actually cross. Rather than a traditional cabled look, the result is more linear, like lines drawn on a chalkboard. The high neckline and vertical ribbing of the button band add to the cool, crisp look I was aiming for. This jacket is knit from the top down in one piece with minimal finishing.” − Tanis Lavallée

Cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down. The Yoke is divided for the Fronts and Back, with stitches cast on for the underarms, and stitches are placed on hold for the Sleeves while the Body is completed. The Yoke and Body are worked flat on a circular needle. The Sleeves are worked in the round on DPNs. The button bands are worked separately and sewn to the center Front edges, with buttonholes worked into the Right Front band.
