Who doesn’t love pockets? Whether it’s to store a tissue or lip balm or just to put your hands in to keep them warm, they’re a great feature for any wintery sweater. I’ve included pockets in past designs but have never done them on the diagonal, so this was my inspiration. The diagonal theme extends to the cable panels which move in a diagonal, starting at the armholes, to form the shoulders.
