The shaped front and back panels of Evo’s richly textured, tactile design are as eye-catching as they are flattering. The braids (which are worked without the need for a cable needle) flanked by columns of twisted stitches and the twisted ribbed trims emphasize the clean, graphic lines of the sweater. The simple reverse stockinette background keeps the look classic and understated. The sweater has a neat, but comfortable fit, which you can customize to your liking and style through optional shaping.

CONSTRUCTION
Evo is worked seamlessly from the top down. The sleeves are worked inside out, so you can work them in stockinette stitch instead of reverse stockinette stitch.
The pattern includes instructions for V-shaping, which is optional. Instructions for a sweater with and without shaping are given.
