Chic, versatile reverso can be worn two ways — as a handsome, front-buttoning cardigan or fashionable, button-down-the-back pullover. Its A-line shape is flattering to almost any woman. Smart details include a dramatic button band, 3/4-length sleeves, and ample pockets. Unique in construction, reverso is knit from the top down in one piece with mock turtleneck, ribbed shoulders, and set-in sleeves. Simple rib stitch provides the structure, while stockinette stitch shows off the drape and softness of the velvety woolfolk yarn. Knitters who enjoy a challenge will delight in watching this garment unfold.
