The contrast between the strongly tridimensional geometric pattern and the plain stockinette of the body, together with the fully reversible design, makes this striking pullover interesting to knit and unique to wear. The simple combination of increases and decreases produces a progressively growing diamond- shaped design that graces the yoke, while short- rows and gentle waist shaping allow a feminine but comfortable fit.
The sweater can also be worn inside out (see last picture).
