Cable Cascade Pullover - Jennifer Appleby

Designing for all her fellow "lazy" knitters, the designer has come up with this fuss-free, practical, yet shapely, pullover. She boasts that "there's no real stitch counting involved in the shaping, no seams to sew, it knits up in no time, and it looks great!" The yarn, a silky baby alpaca and merino, gives the sweater a luxurious feel. The body and sleeves are worked in the round to the armholes, then joined and worked in a single piece to the neck.
