It is a mix of fairisle, with some purled stitches and moves towards in the neck as a cabled yoke
Kim knit the entire sweater in the round, and I think she must have air conditioning, because you will remember what a hot summer we had.
I find diamond shapes in colourwork have a great deal of integrity when is comes to fabric stability.
The kiss of mohair in the yarn adds a smokey touch to the cable pattern
However, besides the fact that Kim knit this stunning sweater from 1994, it the remarkable coincidence that the new Vogue features exactly the same sweater
Which Kim worked on well before the issue arrived on the news stand
so on my recent holiday I read "Big Magic" the latest book by Elizabeth Gilbert, and I am absolutely convinced this is a perfect example of it
Thanks Kim, you are tuned to the cosmos, we are honoured!
