The main feature of Hexangle is the ribbed and cabled stitch pattern worked over the front and back of the jumper. The geometric design is inspired by natural crystal structures, traditional leaded windows, and my love of tessellation.
Starting at the hem with a tubular cast-on, the jumper is worked in the round with an all-over ribbed and cabled stitch pattern. Back and front are divided at the underarms, with the fronts being worked simultaneously; the shoulders are seamed, stitches picked up for the sleeves which are worked in the round to the cuffs, and stitches are picked up for the neckband.
