Inspired by my father, Tomás, and some of the classic vests and pullovers my mother used to make for him, I designed this deep V-neck cabled pullover.
Mom used to knit them in pieces, from the bottom up. My version in his honor, however, is worked seamlessly from the top down.

Tomás has a deep ribbed V-neck and a textured body adorned with chunky cables. It has a relaxed and comfortable fit. The perfect fall sweater!
