“When I discovered this cable stitch − big cable twists framing a broad eyelet panel − I was in love. The cable shape reminded me of big chain links. Since the stitch pattern is so rich in texture, I knew I wanted to use it in an otherwise simple garment. This pullover relies on a softly knit fabric and a slightly oversized fit, while using Loft on relatively large needles creates an airy fabric to contrast denser cable twists. The dolman shape is created by knitting both front and back from the hem up, and then joining them at the top of the sleeve with a three needle bind off. The extra seam created by this method adds some structure to the drapey sleeves to keep the shape from sagging. A deep band of garter stitch trim completes the wide neckline.” − Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark
