Short Description: A simple to work, yet intriguing stitch pattern is used in this unisex pullover, cardigan, or vest in six sizes(XS-S/M-L/1X/2X/3-4X/5X), creating a herringbone twill that rivals woven fabric in appearance. Accented at the side seams by wide, opposing cable panels, this sweater can be knit with a loose, slouchy fit or a tighter sexy fit - either way, it projects a strong menswear look in all the right ways. Knit flat in pieces and seamed together later, this very portable project is a quick knit that offers a polished result.
