Asymmetric cables inspired by the grape vines of my local winery grow up the right side and down the left sleeve. Fitted waist shaping and seamless set-in sleeves make this sweater as enjoyable to knit as it is to wear!

Construction Notes
Sweater body is worked seamlessly from the hem up and the set-in sleeves are worked in the round from the shoulders down. Setup rows are provided so the cables grow into and out of the ribbing flawlessly for all sizes.
Note that the sleeves in this sweater are very fitted. Some knitters have found that fewer decreases, leaving a roomier sleeve, to be more comfortable.
