Rib Magazine, dedicated to publishing “patterns and articles of interest to men who knit and those who knit for them”, recently released the preview its second issue, Navigate. The four sweaters are particularly noteworthy, as the fit and style are excellent and are all classic garments that look like they would be both enjoyable to knit and pieces the recipient would love to wear.
The Navigate Pullover by Annie Lupton, designed using The Fibre Co. Cumbria Fingering, is a beautiful sweater featuring with an all-over cable panel on the front and back, stockinette stitch sleeves, and saddle shoulders. The navy Cumbria Fingering, derwentwater, looks amazing in the cable pattern.
