Pattern notes
This hi-lo, boxy throwover begins with knitting a strip of rib for the back, which is joined to the front rib and then worked in the round. The body is worked to the underarms following an allover OXO cable chart, with a set of increases creating slightly capped sleeves, which are integrated into pattern. Front and back are separated, and the upper body is shaped and worked back and forth. The shoulders are joined with a three-needle bind off, and 2x2 rib completes the neck and armscyes.
