This spectacular sweater is designed by cable goddess Norah Gaughan. We are so excited to hang out and knit this together to encourage and support each other as we work on this advanced, beautiful, and intricate sweater.

Ornately cabled and beautifully tailored, this cardigan inspired by Tyrolean jackets invites a full spectrum of styling choices. Medallion cables climb the fronts, sleeves, and back at a diminishing scale, eventually twining into an ornate braid that takes full advantage of Arbor’s excellent stitch definition. German short rows, transitions in background fabric, and traveling columns of ribbing create flattering lines and a precise fit. Twisted-rib button bands perfected with a picot bind-off are just one example of the delights in this pattern that await the advanced knitter.
