Description from the pattern: “_Ylva can be made as a slightly shaped shell with cables running up the front and back, unfolding into a four-knot and continuing around the V-neck. The cables also edge the armholes…. The jacket has the same basic design, but with the four-knot also emerging from the armhole cable._”
