This beautiful everyday sweater is worked seamlessly from top down. As the name suggests, the sweater is reversible and you can choose whether to wear the stockinette side or reverse stockinette side facing out. The sweater is worked as a regular stockinette sweater. The neckband is folded and looks identical on both sides.

The raglan section and ribbed edges are worked by holding together two strands of main color. The rest of the sweater is worked by holding together one strand of main color and one strand of contrasting color, creating a beautiful marled effect.

The work begins with the folded neckband, followed by short row shaping on neckline to ensure a comfortable fit. After the raglan increases are complete, the sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the body is worked toward the hem, adding a slight A-shaping. The sleeve stitches are then placed on the needles again and worked in the round toward the cuffs. The pattern includes photo tutorials for German short rows and the folded neckband.
