Deborah Newton combines stitch pattern and silhouette in an elegant pullover. The patterned rib stitch molds gently to the body and lends shaping without the need for decreased stitches. The graceful curving hem is worked with gradual increases, and the ribbed border is picked up along the bottom edge and worked down. To call attention to the contrast in stitches, Deborah clearly distinguishes the smooth stockinette-stitch yoke from the etched twist-stitch pattern in the body with a picked-up band of reverse stockinette stitch.
