PATTERN NOTES
It can be a challenge to design a sweater that is both enjoyable to the knitter but that also remains ultra-wearable for the un-fancy man (or woman) in your life. Pilger aims to satisfy both of these conditions.

This sweater is knit in pieces and seamed. A bit of texture at the color-blocked hem switches to easy all-over twist stitch cables for the body. Twisted Ribbing further enhances crisp vertical lines and adds refinement to the piece.
