A striking faux cable, plaited from knit-in strips, encircles van Dillen’s cowl. Worked in reverse stockinette stitch, which causes the fabric to curl for a rounded look, the strips’ texture harmonizes with the garter-stitch background. Ruffled picots rim the outer edges. The braiding technique marbles the rosy tones of Noro Silk Garden colorway #84.
