A cabled tunic featuring one of my favorite cables, the Staghorn Cable on both the front and back is named after one of my favorite songs. Knit with a worsted weight yarn this sweater is cozy yet has a lovely drape. Caribou could be turned into a three season piece if you were to knit it with a cotton or cotton linen blend to wear into the Spring and Fall. The pattern includes versions for knitting in the round and for a seamed version of the sweater.
