The generous shawl collar of this richly textured classic pullover will keep you nice and warm. The simple, bold, mirrored cables on a ground of moss stitch create flattering vertical lines on the body and can be worked from written instructions or from charts, according to your preference. Millisande is knit in the round from the bottom up to the underarms without shaping; the yoke and set-in sleeve caps are completed flat and shaped with sloped bind-offs for tidy, traditional construction. After seaming, the collar is shaped by picking up stitches first from the back neck. As you work the ribbing back and forth you will add stitches progressively down the sides of the front opening to achieve the effect of short rows without requiring any complicated maneuvers. Knit Millisande in a bright autumnal hue of Shelter or choose a dapper menswear shade like Old World or Artifact for subdued good looks.
