Tamara is a modern take on a classic cabled sweater. Knit from the bottom up in the round it features an allover pattern of diamond cables with lace and textured stitches. The boxy shape and drop shoulder style make for a comfy fit and the loose sleeves with cinched in cuffs give a more modern feel to the design. The neckline and sleeve cuffs feature a tubular bind off. Knit up in A Wing & A Prayer Farm’s The Supremes yarn, a woolly, soft farm yarn that is perfect for showcasing the intricate cables, lace and texture!
