Cable knit sweater options to style you through a comfy autumn.

Cable Knit Sweaters

Fall shopping means that you likely have knitwear on your mind.

In fact, they’re among the best when it comes to transitioning that warm-weather wardrobe into the coming months. Yu can easily top everything from a pair of jean shorts to a silk slip dress with some knitwear and make it instantly fall-friendly.

In fact, we dare you to stop at just one—we are personally finding it hard not to add all to our carts!

Pro Tip


A cable knit is inherently chunky, so weigh your material with fit, opting for oversized fits when seeking heavier cottons, or slimmer styles when going for a thinner cashmere gauge.

There’s nothing more cozy than a fresh new collection of sweaters for fall, but we’re starting with the added texture of a cable knit sweater when diving into the knitwear shop this season.
