Casual and stylish, this warm winter pull-over works up quickly in a chunky yarn. The contrasting accent color adds a touch of fun and loads of charm.

It is worked from the bottom up. The mock rib borders are cast on separately for front and back and then joined. The body is then worked in the round, in one piece up to the armholes, and then the front and back are worked separately.

The sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up. Shoulders are seamed and sleeves are sewn to the body. The neck edge is picked up and worked at the end.
