Ribosome

The delicate weaving of cables across a garter stitch background is just magical! This gently shaped cardigan is fun to knit and easy to wear.
This cardigan begins by working the upper yoke from left to right side using short row garter wedges to shape the neck. You then pick up stitches for the lower yoke that are divided for the body and sleeves.
