The Rigging Pullover takes its cue from sailing, interpreting rope rigging in its design elements. The texture and cables produce a dense and cozy fabric, contrasting nicely with the garment’s striking horizontal garter ridges. The ribbed fold-over shawl collar adds drama but is also practical, helping to keep you warm when it’s turned up against the weather.

Notes
Stitches for the collar are picked up on the wrong side of the garment, creating a ridge on the right side. If you don’t like the look of the ridge, pick up the collar stitches on the right side instead.

The collar is sewn down and, therefore, doesn’t require any sort of closure. That said, you could use a decorative closure (like a toggle) to further customize the sweater to your personal style or to the recipient’s.
