Matterhorn - A wide scoop neck pullover with drop shoulders, shortened length and an oversized fit. The Front, Back and Sleeves are made using the Addi Express Kingsize circular knitting machine (46-pin) or similar, along with a small amount of hand knitting.

The ribbing trims and neckline shaping is created using regular hand knitting on a circular needle. A quick project (in terms of “how much quicker could you hand-knit an entire pullover?” ☺).

OPTIONAL: The vertical ridge detail is formed using a line of simple crochet.
