The joy is in the details of the Anchorage Cardigan: twisting cables outline the saddle shoulders and slanted pockets, a zipper facing conceals the zipper tape, and an extrafine merino yarn emphasizes the simple knit-and-purl texture. This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces and then seamed.
