Gin & Tonic is a seamless knit, it's worked from the bottom up with distinct cables line each side of the body, with tails that flow into the hem at bottom - and at the yoke, those tails open up to create the lines of the raglan seam. The overall texture is beautiful and delicate, and really very simple to work. Plus, a big cosy cowl is always a bonus.
I think that Gin & Tonic would be great knitted in Blacker Swan Falkland Merino DK.
