From the Book:

Peplums are always a favorite fashion silhouette. This design uses an easy cable rib pattern for a sleek fit, but the real interest here is threefold: the very unusual way the sleeves are made, the flap edging made in graduated short to long lengths on the bottom and sleeve edges, and the bold oversize rib collar that enhances the neck and shoulder detail. The sleeve shaping is entirely innovative……REIMAGINE, you may want to reimagine this pullover into a dress using a yarn with sequins or metallics. You can also leave off the collar for a sleek V-neck.“
