This cozy pullover is such a fun knit. Lots to do at the outset, working seamlessly from the top, with short row shaping in the shoulders, and gradual decreases down to the underarm. Once front and back are joined, this modified drop-shoulder piece keeps the knitter’s attention with a slip-stitch broken rib detail at the sides and back hem, and a sweet pocket on the front.
