In every knitter’s wardrobe, we would hope to find a timeless cabled sweater, rich in texture and beautifully twisted stitches. Linda Marveng’s Beckside design is everything one needs from a classic sweater: rich cabling, a slightly boxy shape but with all the finishing that make it crisp and easy to wear for most occasions.
The deeply textured centre panel is flanked by softer, undulating cables to add something just a little soft to this otherwise gender-neutral style. Worked in pieces from the bottom up, Beckside is seamed for a stronger, more enduring shape.
