Evergreen is a deep v-neck pullover with just a touch of cable detailing at the sides. It’s knit bottom-up in the round in one piece, then the upper body is worked flat. Sleeves are either knit flat and seamed in, or else picked up around the armholes and knit top-down with short-row shaping.

Classic preppy elegance with minimal finishing. (They might put that on my gravestone.)

Evergreen is worn with the reverse stockinette side out, but it’s knit inside-out, so the body and sleeves are almost totally knit, rather than purled. It’s actually really easy to cable inside-out (the cables are completely charted), but you don’t need to tell anybody when they rave about how brave you are for knitting a whole sweater in reverse stockinette.
