Rigel is a drop-shoulder turtleneck sweater. The body is
worked in the round to the armholes, where it 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. Shallow sleeve caps are shaped with
short rows. The only finishing you’ll need to do is adding
the turtleneck collar and weaving in the ends.
