Two-tone jumper for men has an in­tri­cate ca­ble fab­ric

Rich tex­tures create a sat­is­fy­ingly thick, warm fab­ric on this hand­some two-tone sweater

The Knitter - - Contents - MARTIN STOREY

has com­bined a wide range of ca­bles and stitch tex­tures on this smart round-neck sweater, in­clud­ing hon­ey­combs, braids, di­a­monds and ropes.
