This cabled shawl-collar cardigan radiates classic good looks and cozy texture. Elaborate cable motifs really make Quarry purr; Snoqualmie’s grid of densely twining stitches looks complex but is intuitive to work and easy to memorize. Whether you wear it as a barn coat or dress it up with tall boots and a skirt, this is knitwear that will make you look forward to cold weather.
