Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2003: “Ann E. Smith combines easy shaping with basic stitches to make this V-neck pullover a breeze to knit. The cropped length, deep mistake-stitch rib borders, and cross-over neckband give this otherwise traditional sweater an updated look. Instead of traditional Scandinavian colors, she’s used heathery Shetland yarn in rich, earthy tones and lined the edges with a subtle contrast stripe. Wear the sweater over a tailored shirt or soft T-shirt - either way, it looks, and feels, great.”
