I enjoy playing with different stitch techniques, especially when they start off one way, go into another technique and then, as with this pattern, into another technique again. So here we have a small rib pattern going into a larger rib pattern then into my favourite cable: a plait cable! All these lovely techniques make up a gorgeous, comfortable jumper to feel good in!
