I started this design with the large cable panel at the center front. It reminded me of columns from ancient Greek architecture, so I expanded on this theme with very linear rows of cable ribbing. The straight lines of the all-over pattern and square neckline are softened by subtle waist shaping that takes place invisibly between ribs of the cable pattern. The fabric is quite stretchy, giving the sweater a comfy, relaxed fit while still looking sleek and tidy.
