Let tender memories of garlands and good times grace your holiday pullover with Amabilis. This top-down sweater sports a radiating ribbed neckband that transitions elegantly into scintillating cables, like snowflakes under twinkling lights. Worked seamlessly in the round, reverse stockinette fabric underlines the cables and elevates this piece to a treasured seasonal favorite.
