For an engaging knit that takes full advantage of Peerie’s crisp stitch definition, lively bounce, and all-around versatility, try the Ines Pullover. The highlight of this tailored, square turtleneck pullover are intriguing center panels of textural collage at both the front and the back. Half-twisted ribbing, garter stitch, and cable twists each take their turn on backgrounds of stockinette and reverse stockinette to yield a piece nothing short of impressive.

This pullover is worked flat, in pieces, from the bottom up, then seamed together. The collar is picked up and worked circularly after garment assembly. The textured motifs are worked from charts only.
