Aran Pullover - Kristin Nicholas

Cables travel from the ribless hem to form interlocking diamonds on a seed-stitch background. The sleeves are worked without cables in simple seed-stitch, and the sweater ends in a high ribbed collar. A soft, flecked yarn makes the pullover a supple version of the traditional bulky Aran.
