Take a closer look!
The V-neck cardigan is a classic silhouette, and Copper Mountain's all-over cable stitch pattern elevates the classic to new heights. Worked straight to the armholes with no shaping, Copper Mountain is a great option for men, women, and kids. It looks great in a variety of gauges and textures of yarn. Please be sure to swatch in the shadow cable stitch pattern for accurate gauge.
By default, Copper Mountain will use your average sweater and long sleeve lengths, a set-in sleeve construction, and features a V neckline that begins 1.5'' (4 cm) below your armhole shaping. Simple 2x2 ribbing trims all edges. Maya is wearing the sample sweater with these options in a women's relaxed fit. Copper Mountain is also available in the drop-shoulder construction, and tapered and a-line silhouettes, in whatever sleeve and sweater lengths you prefer.

I prefer the look of a slightly-fuzzy, slightly-heathered yarn for this cable pattern, and really appreciate the bit of drape alpaca gives to fabric. So I strongly recommend Berroco Ultra Alpaca, the yarn used in this sample, for your Copper Mountain. I used the color "Lobster Mix", #6297, but there are lots of great heathered colors in this yarn so be creative!
For stability, I liked the Shadow Cable stitch pattern at a gauge of 24 stitches and 28 rows to 4'' (10 cm) in Ultra Alpaca.
