The tiny hamlet of Monte Rio sits next to the beautiful Russian River in Northern California. The Monte Rio pullover reflects the sandy beaches and gentle turns of the river.

The pullover is worked top down from the ribbed neck and saddle straps. After armhole shaping, the front and back are joined in the round. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and include the reserved saddle strap stitches. Cable patterns are charted only.

Sample is 36.5” size; model is 31” chest.
