The Gardenio di Boboli Pullover is a dramatic cowl-neck sweater featuring unusual construction: the bold, graphic, cabled panel that forms the yoke of the sweater is worked sideways, whereas the stockinette body and ribbed sleeves are picked up from their respective edges and worked down. Diagonal cables grow out of 2x2 rib and provide an eye-catching but sophisticated texture.
