A reversible crossed rib collar flows into the raglan shaping and then down to the side panels of this pullover. Minimal ease, ribbed side panels and a bit of waist shaping give this sweater a close, but not overly tight fit. The turtleneck can be worn buttoned up against a cold wind or left open to show off the reversible stitch pattern. Shown modeled in size 34 on a 33.5 inch bust.

This pattern is worked from the top down, in the round with a raglan yoke. It begins with the turtleneck worked flat in a reversible crossed rib and is then joined in the round. The crossed rib continues along the raglan increase lines and then into a panel of crossed rib at the sides. This pattern involves minimal finishing, just a few stitches to sew down and buttons to add at the neck, and then you are ready to go!

Due to the large number of sizes, the pattern is split into two pdfs with 5 sizes each. When purchasing this pattern you will receive both files. The pattern also includes a spreadsheet to help you track your shaping and cable crossing rows.
