This is the perfect pullover. The light gauge and roomy design make it a delightful piece that will look fabulous with heels and transition to a romantic, fireside cuddle without skipping a beat. It’s knit bottom up in a slipped stitch garter pattern with some simple cabling. If you’ve been drooling over a beautiful cabled sweater but have been too intimidated to take it on, this might be the perfect project.
