The Samambaia Sweater is an easy cable sweater pattern, worked in the round from bottom up. The boxy, cropped fit makes it a great versatile piece to go with any outfit, from dresses to high-waisted pants, in a chilly summer night or a sunny winter day. The pattern was designed and developed to be worn with 20 to 25 cm (8 to 10 in) of positive ease.
