Heavy, cable knit sweaters are usually quite large and bulky, so we are thrilled to discover the Grisel Turtleneck Sweater by Theory, which is only 22 inches long. It features a turtleneck, exposed side zipper, shirttail hem, ribbed cuffs, and long sleeves. It is also 100% wool.

The Shirt Snob sees the Trapeze Pea Coat Sweater by Free People more as a cardigan than a coat, but it's still cute. It has metallic stripes throughout, a shawl collar, rolled edge and six buttons at the open placket, and long sleeves. It is made of a mix of fibers including 51% wool, and it is available in oatmeal and navy.
The Hetta Sweater by Marc by Marc Jacobs is a cute polo top with stripes, a single button at the chambray fold-over collar, four hidden buttons at the neck, ribbed banding at the hem, rolled edge at the cuffs, and short dolman sleeves. From afar, it doesn't look like a sweater, but it is indeed knit.

The Alex Stripe Sweater by Marc by Marc Jacobs is interesting because it doesn't look like your typical pointelle top. But there are pointelle details throughout as well as cable knit details, a ribbed and ruffled turtleneck, four buttons at the back of the neck, ribbed banding at the hem and cuffs, and long sleeves. It is made from a wool and cashmere blend.
