With its slightly A-line shape, modified drop shoulder, and combination of stockinette stitch on the body with heavily cabled sleeves, Jacana creates a distinctively modern piece. Worked from the top down, this seamless pullover is full of thoughtful details, such as short row shaping of the shoulders or twisted stitch ribbings for an irresistibly polished feel.

If you are looking for the yarn, which works perfectly in stockinette and textured stitch alike, the Miss Babs Yummy 3-ply is what you are probably looking for.
