Knitting sideways opens up new possibilities. This cabled cardigan begins at the cuffs and grows toward the center line, exploring lateral texture and negative space. Braided horseshoe motifs play across the body and dolman half sleeves but leave the shoulders intriguingly accented by the calm of reverse stockinette. Details like garter stitch cuffs turned at an unexpected angle and an exposed bind-off at the center back highlight the unusual construction, while a continuous band of garter stitch makes a clean and practical finish to the fronts.
