My design ideas and advice: This pattern uses the same rib and cable pattern as the Portalla Jumper from my Simple Knits book. I love designing patterns like this one where the stitches change. This one changes from the smooth panel at the bottom to the cable at the top. I think it’s like the stitches are going on a journey, they start with a smooth, relaxing wander and then go dancing with a cross over cable!
