Beginning with a provisional cast-on along the back bodice and sleeves, the yoke and sleeves of this pullover are worked in ribs that run up over the shoulders—with a few increases and decreases to shape the sleeve caps—then down to the lower front bodice. The sleeve stitches are joined with a three-needle bind-off, then the body is worked in rounds in a relatively simple Fair Isle pattern for a fine balance of texture and color.
