A preppy crew pullover gets a lift from stripes at the hem and cuffs accentuated by a staggered rib that subtly interlocks the two colors. Simple techniques make this pattern accessible to the adventurous beginner; a subtle taper from hem to chest gives it tailored good looks as well. Choose a high-contrast or bright accent for the stripes — the sample is shown in Woodsmoke + Embers — or use closely related shades for an understated look.
