Rustic yet luxurious, this textural cable and slip stitch pullover is ideal for chilly days. A wide neck, bracelet sleeves, and intriguing split in the front hem are stylish details we love. Picture yourself wearing this piece for a walk in the woods followed by a cup of hot apple cider in a cozy cabin – that’s just the sort of thing that inspired the Vermillion sweater.

This sweater is worked flat in pieces and seamed. The front begins with three sections: the Right, Center, and Left hems. After the hem is complete, the three pieces are joined together and worked as one piece for the remainder of the front. The back is worked in one piece throughout. The shoulders are joined using the three-needle bind off. After assembling the sweater, stitches for the neckband are picked up and knit in the round.
