Chestnut is such a joy to knit, with its super-simple allover cable motif worked on larger needles—it whips up in no time. A simple knit with no shoulder shaping, this pullover’s cables coincide only with shaping in the sleeves, which are picked up from the armhole and knitted to the cuffs. A simple ribbed trim finishes this sweet cardi.
