There have been some overwrought cable sweaters showing up in the Pre-Fall 2014 collections — I’m looking at you Carven — but none kookier than the one-armed sweater at Thakoon, which they liked so much they incorporated it into multiple looks. (When I wore my one-armed Acer to the Top of the Hyatt in San Diego recently, I had no idea I was on trend.) I fear the army of knock-offs this might inspire, but on the other hand, it could be a welcome sight to knitters with Second Sleeve Syndrome!
There is also a two-sleeved version, thankfully. The cablework falls somewhere between inventive and strained — I’m on the fence, but leaning toward like. Actually, the longer I look at this, the more I find myself falling under the spell of the one-armed version.
Speaking of cables and sleeves, apart from the Pepto pink, I’m also rather fond of the cable-sleeved sweater at See by Chloé.
