Alaska Cable Shrug Knitting Pattern
Aran cable cardigan
“This cardigan is knitted in one piece and is cleverly seamed to form the innovative shape. With double moss stitch as the ground, a large interlocking cable twists up both fronts and across the shoulders in a distinctive edge to edge cardigan. Wear it on its own or with your favourite leather belt.”
- Jo Storie
