Astoria is worked top down in a completely seamless manner! Relaxed fit, a shirt tail hemline and easy mock cables add a figure-flattering and romantic twist to your favorite sweater.
Create your own wearable work of art with cable and diamond inserts in the upper back. Start the neckline with cabled ribbing and then drop cables over the shoulders and down the sleeves to the cabled ribbing at the cuffs. Finish it with matching cabled ribbing at the cuffs and hemline and sneak a little twisting cable down the side seam.
This sweater is versatile enough to be made for any season and the flowing longer tunic-length with slight waist shaping enhances any figure type.
This sweater design pays tribute to Astoria, a scenic northern coastal town in Oregon where the mighty Columbia River flows into the Pacific Ocean and where Lewis and Clark (and Sacajawea) camped for the winter after reaching their destination.
