Zopflicious is a loose fitting cardigan celebrating the beauty of cables. The cardigan has an interesting construction: you start by casting on stitches from cuff to cuff. Once the body is finished, all that remains are the sleeve cuffs with a bit of ribbing. Most of the cardigan is worked in seed stitch, switching the places of knits and purls on every row. This will take a bit of concentration with the cables but the result is worth the trouble.
