Baby Cocktails' Sazerac adds a little drama to the classic cabled pullover. A beautifully intricate motif is the focus of the design. Side panels with twisted cables keep the focus at center while providing a nice frame for the sweater body. Twisted cables again define the transition from sleeve to body at the shoulders. Although it looks complex, Sazerac is much easier than you think—both to knit and to modify. The cables themselves are geometric and become routine quickly, plus alterations for width can
be added to purl sections outside the cable repeats. The fit is easy and a modified drop shoulder keeps it from being too boxy. Once finished, it’s a beautiful, wearable sweater that’s sure to turn a few heads.
