A timeless cabled pullover in Shelter is distinguished by bold staghorn cables and a flowing combination of raglan and saddle shoulder shaping. Cordova is designed to be roomy and is worked without waist shaping, but thoughtful placement of the large cable motifs on a ground of trinity stitch creates a flattering line. The pullover is worked flat with slipped garter selvedges and all stitch motifs are charted.
