Tangential Blues

This cosy winter sweater is comfortable to wear and the cables are fun to knit! Worked from the top down with raglan shoulder shaping there is a delicate twisted stitch cable along the front and a twisted stitch sleeve cable. The hem has a gentle curve along the back created with short rows.
