I've come across a really beautiful and unique sweater. It's the Palma Sweater (shown at left) by Lene Holme Samsøe. What initially drew me to this sweater was its simplicity: a cross-front sweater with three-quarter-length sleeves and a wide-rib collar. Then I saw the back, and it's made up of a stunning cable panel that incorporates a leafy vine set off with rope cables. You know how I love leaves; add in the cables and it's a winner in my book.

A rich play of texture patterns - twist stitches, cables, and ribs - embellishes this fitted cardigan. Small gussets worked in seed stitch taper from the hem to shape the waist on front and back, and three-quarter-length sleeves end just below the elbow. A scalloped crocheted edging finishes the narrow shawl collar and buttonbands.
The diagonal stitch pattern of this long-sleeved tunic, which can be worn over everything from a swimsuit to a dress, is visually slimming-always a nice effect. Though the pattern requires concentration at first, there is an obvious logic to the slanting stitches that makes errors easy to spot. With simplicity in mind, the pattern is worked on right-side rows and the shaping is worked on wrong-side rows (the two don't interfere with each other) and there is no edge finishing. The viscose-linen yarn is appealingly soft and comfortable. Finished Size: 39 (43 1/2, 48, 52 1/2)" (99, 110.5 [122, 133.5] cm) bust circumference.
The designer lets this tunic grow naturally out of a Japanese stitch pattern of leaves and flowers. After working the lower body from side to side, the upper body and sleeves are worked as one piece to the shoulders. A luxurious silk-and-seaweed blend highlights the openwork and gives the fabric depth. Finished Size: 33 1/4 (37, 40 3/4, 44 1/2, 49 1/4, 53, 56 3/4)" bust circumference. Tunic shown measures 37"; modeled with about 5" positive ease. Yarn: Tilli Tomas Fil de la Mer (70% silk, 30% SeaCell; 140 yd [128 m]/50 g): #249 parchment, 8 (8, 9, 9, 11, 12, 12) skeins.
