Meander

Top

These cables are a little different from my signature cables with dropped stitches.  I used eyelets instead of the dropped stitches so there is just a hint of lace.  The eyelets are made using increases and decreases on every right side row even when working cables.  This pattern gives you a choice of chest circumference and finished length.  The photos show one top in the regular fit with longer length and another top with oversized fit and shorter length.  As you can see, different combinations of circumference and length give totally different looks.
