BODACIOUS BOSOM WARMER


This design is a quirky, shapely cable-edged shoulder wrap, made bodacious by the virtue of how the large cables fall around the bodice.

The pattern has button-front and pullover options, with charted and text directions.

The large, shaped cable is knit flat, then the twisted rib is picked up and worked to the neck.

Knit in Cascade Yarns Eco, doubled, for those brisk autumn or early spring days. Wear it over a suit to work, or your favorite pullover sweater, on the weekends!
