Rigel is a drop-shoulder turtleneck sweater. The body is worked in the round to the armholes, where its body is divided and back and front are finished separately. Both the front and back of the neck are lowered to make sure the collar lays flat. After joining the shoulders, the sleeves are picked up at the armhole and worked down towards the cuff in a wide rib pattern that echoes the verticals of the body pattern. Narrow sleeve caps are shaped with short rows. The only finishing you’ll need to do are adding the turtleneck collar and weaving in the ends.
