Using the same marltarsia cable panel as the matching Shana Hat, this top is so much fun to knit, thanks to the modular design. The centre panels are knit from the bottom up, then the sleeves and sides are worked from the center out. The ribbed edgings are the finishing touches, and the only sections worked in the round. As each new section is added, the initial row is worked in Cabrito, creating a subtle but clear indication of how the top was constructed.
