As every winter approaches I long for a cozy, chunky cabled cardigan. This year I started knitting early enough to ensure I’d have it for the winter! This cardigan is knit from the top down and features chunky textured cables on the front and back, with a shawl collar. Shoulders are shaped using raglan increases and there are optional pockets for good measure!
