“I love this cable motif. I’ll confess I took nearly as much time perfecting just the right stitch combination as it took to knit the sample. The asymmetry of the twisted-stitch cable pattern is the feature of this pullover, but the side hem slits and dolman sleeve shaping pull it all together in a modern, minimal way.” – Julie Hoover
