VF117 Double Chain Cable Pattern
What I like about the pattern that I chose for this sweater is that it is unusual to find Seed Stitch used as the primary element in a cable, rather that just in the background. To complement the texture of the cables, I used Seed Stitch for the cuffs, hems, and neck band as well.
