Rift is a casual and cozy everyday sweater worked seamlessly from the top down. It features relaxed shaping at the body, a round neckline with a higher back neck, and sleeves which taper toward the cuff.

The knit-like roll edge of the neckline is made with the help of slip stitches worked in front loops only and in a spiral with the front side always facing. This makes the edging roll up naturally.

The hem and sleeves are embellished with a slip stitch edging that is worked directly onto the edge of the hem/cuff.

The pattern uses the simplest crochet stitches: single crochet, chain and slip stitch.
