This classic Aran is the men’s version of the Cambridge pullover, with traditional cable stitches paired with varied stitch patterns. Some cables have been modified from the women’s version for a more masculine look and so they can be worked a bit faster. It has minimal shaping and is worked flat, from the bottom up. With a comfortable fit, this is perfect for an heirloom sweater that will last years and years.
