This ribbed and cabled pullover was designed as a birthday gift for a guy who is a casual dresser and likes his sweaters to be trim-looking while not fitting too snugly in the chest and shoulders. It has saddle shoulders and a crew neck for a casual, comfortable fit. The sleeves feature a spiraling knotwork design inspired by a border pattern from folio 21v. of the Book of Durrow, ca 650 CE.
