The traditional fisherman’s sweater is an enduring source of inspiration for hand knitters and designers alike.
Alexander Wang’s take on the classic sweater features metal studs highlighting the cable patterning.
This is a sweater that has never really gone out of style. There are so many beautiful versions of it on Ravelry, but here are a couple that stood out to me as really remaining true to the tradition, but remaining fresh.
The Catherine sweater by Glenna C. adds a flattering feminine scoop neck to the mix, as well as a lattice-type pattern to the centre front panel.
The Fisher Queen by Jennifer Dassau introduces interesting broken ribbing to the side panels, and a quick-to-knit bulky yarn to mix. The natural colour of the yarn really shows up the lovely textures.
