Sydney by Jennifer WoodSometimes you just need to knit a cabled pullover in some wooly wool. When I felt this urging I turned to Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok and some unusual cable patterns and created Sydney. Different arrangements of cable patterns on the front and back along with a unique rib pattern adds interest to this classic saddle shoulder pullover. Woolstok a sturdy gently plied yarn has loft and lightness that gives you a warm and cozy sweater that does not weigh you down. It is the perfect yarn for this pullover. The nerdy boy name Sidney has morphed into the polished, creative, elegant girl name Sydney just as the typical cabled pullover morphed into creative, chic Sydney pullover.
