From the designer on Knitty:

“From cuddly-warm to daring-hot in just an instant: Button it up and you will have a cowly collar keeping the cold wind away under your coat. Leave it open to show some shoulder when you arrive at the bar.

This sweater came to my mind after watching too much of “Mad Men” while knitting and admiring secretary Joan Harris (Holloway) in her elegant yet sexy outfits.

This sweater is knit top-down (so you can try it on in the process to ensure a perfect fit), completely seamless and features reversible cables that look good both buttoned up and folded over.“

The yarn used for this sweater (BC Garn Lucca) has been discontinued, but you can still find sweater quantities in some shops. Alternative yarns should ideally be worsted weights that are not too heavy and create a pleasant fabric at a gauge of 20 stitches/4 inches in stockinette stitch.
