This handsome basic raglan embellished with doughy cables has all the hallmarks of a lived-in staple. The bold effect of the cables belies their simplicity — Oda would make an excellent first project if you’re new at knitting cables (or sweaters). With simple techniques and straightforward bottom-up seamed construction, this pattern is accessible to adventurous beginners.  Wear Oda with an oversized fit allowing ease over the hips, as the hem falls to low hip length.  Choose a color from the Shelter palette that will anchor your wardrobe for layering over shirts or dresses. The sample is shown in Truffle Hunt, but Oda would be equally versatile in a soft grey like Sweatshirt, the near black of Cast Iron, or the calm blue of Faded Quilt.
