ML044 Men's Aran Fences

Cranley: "One of our goals at maddy laine is to produce classic but stylish knitting patterns. It's one thing to enjoy knitting an entire sweater but it's even nicer to be able to include that sweater in your wardrobe for many years to come. This men's pattern suits the classic category perfectly. Not only do you get one classic but two as the pattern includes instructions for a cardigan and a pullover, both featuring the folded cables and fences stitch patterns.

"The cardigan features the folded cable bordering the V-neck shaping while the 'fences' lend a subtle checkered texture to the garment. The pullover sports a three-button placket with crew neck shaping that is neatly finished with a double-thickness neckband. Both styles have drop shoulder comfort with sleeves featuring the cables and fences patterns. An aran weight yarn lends body to this pattern and if using a natural fiber, loads of durability. This one's a keeper for your pattern library."
