Desert is the perfect timeless sweater. Work in a beautiful fingering weight yarn, with simple cable texture and a small v-neck that results in a flattering and modern silhouette.

It is worked seamlessly from the top-down with a cable stitch pattern throughout.
Start working the back and shape the back neck with short rows. Continue to work the back until the length of the armhole. Pick up the stitches for the front and work both fronts symmetrically until the length of the armhole. Join back and fronts to work the body in cable pattern down to the bottom ribbing. Pick up the sleeve sts to work the sleeves in rounds in cable pattern.
