A sweater and shorts is one of my favorite spring/fall combos. I usually wear mine with dark tights and ankle boots, rather than fishnets and platforms like Russian fashion editor Natalia Alaverdian, but I love what she’s done with the tucked-in sweater, demure white shirt, and the sportcoat thrown over her shoulders. And who couldn’t use a perfect little black cable sweater, to be worn a thousand different ways? The best cable sweater pattern I know is actually the brand new one from Jared Flood, called Bray. You could knit it in the prescribed yarn, Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, in Cast Iron, which is a tweedy near-black. Or for a true black, try Shibui Merino Alpaca in Abyss, which would also make a garment with a little more drape. To top it off, you could even knit yourself a coordinating Bray Cap in Shelter/Fossil.

Gorgeous! Nice job!
I love sweaters and shorts, too ~ there’s just something so stylish yet casual about the whole ensemble. I.must.knit.Bray! It’s exactly the type of cable sweater I’ve been itching to cast on.
Me too!! That’s my favorite outfit. Bray is gorgeous.
Beautiful look and great suggestions!
Loooooove this look. Thank you for sharing! I like what Evelyn said…. Stylish yet casual.
