I love braided hair and I love cables, so why not create a sweater with both of those lovely features? This asymmetrical sweater features a dramatic cable down the right front, enhanced by cables down each sleeve and around the bottoms of the sleeves and sweater body. The braid and cables seem to be endlessly connected, and so inspired the name of “Tresse de Vie”, or “Braid of Life”. Although it may look difficult, the construction of this sweater is surprisingly easy and straightforward and the sweater will become a classic in your wardrobe.
