Notes: Main body section is worked as a rectangle in three columns of intarsia. The ends of the rectangle are overlapped to form a tube, then stitches are picked up along one edge to create the ribbed neckline. Neckline stitches are intentionally picked up from the wrong side (WS) as a design element. When working with long-color variegated yarns, wind off smaller balls of yarn as needed to match colors. Join new yarns within the stockinette areas of the stitch pattern, not at the beginning of a row or at the join between intarsia columns. Wind off smaller balls of yarn as needed to match colors.
