Cabled V-Neck Pullover

by Nell Ziroli

A braided cable tapers as it climbs the front of this comfortable pullover and forks at the deep V-neck to form a stylish collar. A gentle A-line and a split ribbed hem create a relaxed fit, but set-in sleeves and the intriguing neckline lend polish to take you from the garden to the market to the office. Arvid is worked from the bottom up in the round after the hem, but the sleeves are knit flat and sewn in. The collar is worked together with the sweater front, then extended and seamed along the back neck.
