Sazerac adds a little drama to the classic cabled pullover. A beautifully intricate motif is the focus of the design, and it really stands out when worked in this pale blue from YOTH.
Twisted ribs frame the main cable motif on the front and back, and keep the focus at center. A smaller repeat of the main cable runs up each arm and the twisted ribs define the transition from sleeve to body at the shoulders.
Although it looks complex, Sazerac is much easier than you think – both to knit and to modify. The cables themselves are geometric and become routine quickly, plus alterations for width can be added to purl sections outside the cable repeats. Length can be modified by knitting to desired length before armholes. The fit is easy and a modified drop shoulder keeps it from being too boxy. It's a beautiful, wearable sweater that's sure to turn a few heads.
