Color blocking achieves stylish new heights in this sporty pullover. The front and back are worked in intarsia to achieve a faux-raglan effect; saddle-shoulder sleeves knit in a third color are set in. The subtlest of A-line shapes gives League a neat fit that still allows layering over collared shirts.


The pieces are worked flat and sewn together. The front and back are worked using the Intarsia method, with increases and decreases on each side of the color change to shift the division line between the color blocking. The neckband is picked up and worked circularly after garment assembly.
