Update your fall wardrobe with this modern take on the traditional cabled cardigan. The sweater is kept minimal with stockinette stitch and ribbed edgings to let the cable around the yoke take center stage. This cardigan is knit from the top down with round yoke shaping that transitions to raglan shaping for a refined fit.
