My very favorite sweater, my husband’s favorite too. I always get compliments when I wear it! The pattern is a bit of a challenge, not your typical cables. There is a little “nest” inside each cable where the little pearl rests. I thought putting the pearls in every cable would be too heavy, so I just put them on the front, cuffs and collar. This took a year to make, it hibernated for weeks, even months at a time while I worked on other things. I made the sleeves bracelet length.

2013, still my favorite sweater ever and looks brand new after 8 years!
