Binsey

Multidirectional lines add strength and interest to this bold sweater that makes the most of its unusual construction. Vertical and horizontal ribbing are combined with a bold panel of reverse stocking stitch to shape the neckline. The body is worked in pieces before shoulders are joined, the sleeves are then worked flat from the top down. Finally, the collar is worked in the round before the body and sleeves are then seamed to complete the garment. A sweater for those who love an engaging knit with pleasing and easy to wear results. To be worn with 25-30 cm (10-12 in) positive ease at bust.
