Marlaina "Marly" Bird fled the world of financial services to launch her Yarn Thing podcast and hasn't looked back since. To Marly, a bi-craftsy girl who both knits and crochets, the yarn is the star, not how you work with it. She's creative director for Bijou Basin Ranch Yarns and the co-author of Curvy Crochet (Leisure Arts, 2011). You've seen her designs in Knit Simple, Interweave Crochet, Knitscene, Inside Crochet, Wild Fiber and Petite Purls, and in the books Perfectly Plus and Knitting Plus. In her spare time she raises three kids in suburban Denver.

Gregg, the model, wanted to take this one home. He said it was one of the most comfortable sweaters he had ever had on!
This is a great piece for the man in your life. It is fun to knit without being 'too much' for a man to wear. Shoot, it would look great as a boyfriend sweater on women too!
The wonderful saddle shoulder construction makes the cables really steal the show and allows for broad shoulders to fit comfortably.
Choose a lovely tweed for added texture. Color choice is important here as the lighter the color the more the cables will pop!
Easily adjustable to really customize the right size for you or the man in your life!
14 sts and 25 rows = 4" in Seed St.

Take time to save time, check your gauge.
