This designer likes to improvise on construction techniques to come up with unusual, but flattering, sweater designs. She worked this ribbed pullover in a single piece, beginning at the lower front, up and over the shoulders (with the sleeves shaped along the way), then down to the lower back. To break up the rigid vertical lines, she used carefully placed increases and decreases to tilt the angles of the ribs and shape the shoulders and sleeves. Stitches for the wide cuffs are picked up from the bottoms of the sleeves and worked downward.
