I love how much life this cable pattern has, and the way the garter stitch background adds texture to the pattern. the sweater is wonderfully cozy and the tight cabling at the beginning of the sweater and sleeves, and at the top of the neck give the edges an eye-catching ripple.
In Cable and Garter Pattern, 25 sts and 32 rows = 4"/10cm.
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
