Eyelets and asymmetrical cable placement make this otherwise simple sweater innovative and unexpected. The Aspen Pullover is worked in one piece from front to back; the sleeve stitches are cast on and bound off to keep the fabric continuous. If you prefer your sweater shorter or longer, adjust the number of cable repeats at the bottom edge.
