The sweater pattern is mine and I used tratitional cables. Since Mr. Carmichael lives near the ocean I used a wave-like pattern in the center. I made the sweater with raglan sleeves for two reasons: Dennis mentioned liking raglan construction when the sweater was first discussed, and I prefer a raglan shaping as it cuts down on the bulk under the arms that you get with a drop-shoulder.
