In this feature from the new issue of HIGHStyle, our editors discuss this season's best cable knit sweaters.

Cable knit sweaters are criminally underrated — and we're here to set the record straight. The humble knit embodies a perfect if not slightly contradictory mixture of vibes. Depending on the piece, it can lean towards country-club preppiness, give a Hemingway-esque tortured artist feeling, or look like you're fresh off the farm. Basically, the cable knit contains multitudes, which could be a reason why we're all suddenly thirsty for the chunky knit.

Either way, the cable knit is the perfect spring sweater, and if you don't already have one in your rotation, our editors have done the hard work of selecting the best styles this season.
