Product description

A mossy evergreen forest rendered in textured stitches. Cascades is a classic pullover in Shelter with panels of tree motifs in twisted stitches against a ground of double moss stitch. Columns of tiny, mirrored cables define the shifts in stitch pattern to create flattering vertical lines and pleasing side details. The body and sleeves are worked circularly from the bottom up and joined at the yoke, which is worked in the round until the neck shaping. The twisted-rib cuffs and hem flow beautifully from a rib cabled cast on, a useful technique fully explained in the pattern. Cascades is worked from a combination of charted and written instructions. Knit it in a modern bright hue—our sample is in Hayloft—or go timeless with a pale neutral like Fossil or Snowbound.
