Big Bend is a lovely loose-fitting pullover featuring wide three-quarter length sleeves and a straight, borderline boxy shape. The big bold cable on the front and back of the sweater adds a sophisticated feel and fun, interesting stitches to the project. It’s knit bottom-up, in the round, seamlessly.

This pattern, along with ten more Texas-inspired designs, can be found in issue ten of Nomadic Knits, which is available now.
