A gorgeous sweater with wide, textured panel on the front and back, set against a stocking stitch background.
The stitches used comprise a mix of twisted stitches to form a braid effect (worked without a cable needle) at each side of the centre leaf panel.
The 2 stitch leaf cables form the “veins” of the leaf shapes in the panel, with the addition of the bobbles to give added interest.
If you prefer a crew neck in place of the polo, just work 6 rows of the ribbing instead.
