Similar to Artyarns leaflet P90, but with a variation on the stitch pattern and shaping.

Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2009: “Can’t decide between gold and silver? Grab Schreier’s ribbed pullover, which incorporates both hues in diagonal bands of alternating stockinette and reverse-stockinette stitching. The front and back, knit in Artyarns’ hand-dyed ‘Silk Pearl,’ are shaped with a combination of increases and short rows. The neck is trimmed with Artyarns’ matching ‘Beaded Pearl & Sequins.’”

“Classic-fitting short-sleeved top.”
