Fer forgé, a cabled pattern inspired by a beautiful ironwork table (last photo).

The slightly oversized, cropped pullover is worked top down and seamlessly in the round. It starts with the neckband, then a few short rows are worked to shape the back neck, the circular yoke is built up with cables and bobbles.
Similar cable patterns are added to the bottom sides and the sleeves.
