Vlada is a gorgeous introduction to cabling, if you haven’t done much of this textural technique before. This is a knitted flat and seamed sweater, where you can knit the pieces, and then work the embroidery over the cables as you go, or all together at the end. It really makes the cables pop, and you can introduce any shade that you love to enhance the texture!
