Cable and Rib Pullover

Designer: Sarah Solomon

CONSTRUCTION OVERVIEW

Valkyrie’s striking panels of rib and traveling cables create sinuous lines and a regal aspect.  Knit in pieces from the bottom up for the perfect tailored fit, this sweater fits like a custom suit of armor but is light as a feather thanks to the yarn’s woolen-spun construction.
