The Ginger Sweater is a wonderfully soft, roomy sweater with a beautiful cable pattern. She has a high collar & cuffs in double twisted rib stitch. The sweater is knitted seamlessly from top to bottom. First the collar is worked in double twisted rib, followed by the yoke where German short rows are used for shaping the neckline. The rest of the sweater (yoke, body and sleeves) is worked in the round. Ginger is the perfect winter knit. A sweater you want to live in during the cold months.
