Criss-crossing, interlocking cables are design elements we love at Hudson + West Co. Plymouth by Sarah Solomon is a modern cable masterpiece featuring an allover lattice cable motif on the back, front, and sleeves. This drop shoulder, long cardigan has front pockets for chilly fingers and a deep ribbed button band, which is picked up and knit to the body in finishing. Plymouth is worked from the bottom up in pieces, starting with an optional tubular cast on and seamed.
