Design Process: Low Tide Ripples

I sent my submission to Twist Collective last winter and when I received their acceptance message, I started (right after I had stopped jumping and had calmed down) thinking about the implementation. It was good to start early, as I changed my mind many times while searching for better ways to do things. Because this sweater is knit from top down, I naturally had to start from increases. After trying basic raglan and yoke increases, I ended up with something in between — I created increases that spread out like beams of sun on both sides.
Sleeves are the thing I love the most about this sweater. I wanted the buttonband to be sturdy and not lose its shape, so it's cabled too. Increases and decreases are hidden inside the cabling.
