The designer pulled the bold point-to-point color pattern that blankets this sweater from Alice Starmore's Charts for Colour Knitting, then framed the sweater at the bottom, neck, and sleeve edges with a 2x2 ribbing accented with a single stripe (an idea she pulled from photos of sweaters from the 1950s). Although the point-to-point pattern appears complex, that is an optical illusion. Because the pattern repeats over 14 stitches and 8 rows, it is easily memorized or followed by looking at the preceding knitting rather than the printed chart. The body of the sweater is worked in the round to the armhole, at which point stitches are separated for the front and back, and worked separately back and forth to the shoulders. The shoulder stitches are bound off together. The sleeves are worked from the cuff upward, then sewn into the armholes.
