Pattern can be found in the 2015 Spring/Summer Magalog.

This pullover is perfect for any gender. John’s design process starts with selecting one major design element to feature and then supporting that element with meticulous attention to detail. The contrasting, retro-feeling side stripes were John’s main design feature for this pullover. He then repeats the contrasting color on the inside of the hems at the waist, neck, and cuffs. This “sure to be new favorite” can be knit with either short or long sleeves. Yarn requirements on the pattern page.
Jodi is shown to the left wearing the small, while Matthew, in blue, is sporting the large.

Notes: Note: This garment is worked flat from the bottom hem(s) up to the Sleeve(s) join. Sleeves are joined after the Back and Front are seamed, and the yoke is worked in the round to the shoulders, when the yoke is then worked flat again, before joining to finish the collar in the round.
