Libretto is the text used in musical work, and to me, the curves and subtle lines of this sweater really do sing. Tosca is a yarn that is full of texture without a complicated stitch pattern, so the slanted ribbing on the cowl/turtle neck, cuffs and an even more dramatic diagonal rib on the hem with a button closer add just enough extra to make a simple sweater more interesting.

This sweater is designed for the advanced beginner. It is worked seamlessly from the top down. You will use a provisional cast on so the collar can be knit later. The hem is knit onto the body at a diagonal once the body is complete.
