The Crossings is a casual tee worked with a carefree center cable, flanked by more structured cables. at each side. Worked in a linen/cotton blend, this top becomes an easy-to-wear piece as the weather warms.

The pullover is constructed from the bottom up, in the round to the underarms. Front and back are then worked separately in rows to the shoulders. Sleeves are worked flat.

The cable patterns are both written and charted.
