a. Rib Interrupted is a slightly cropped, dropped shoulder pullover with a textured rib stitch pattern. The pullover features a mock turtleneck, ribbed body and sleeve, wide sleeves, and a contrast ribbed pattern on the hem and sleeve cuffs. The stitch pattern is easy to follow and designed for all skill levels.

b. This pullover is worked from the bottom up, in the round to the armholes, then the front and back are separated and worked flat. After the shoulders are joined, the sleeves are picked up and worked in the round.

c. The Interrupted Rib and Grid stitch pattern instructions vary when knitting in the round versus when knitting flat. Be sure to follow the correct one.

d. Patterning in faux sides incorporates stitches to ensure pattern matches at shoulder seam.

e. Shoulders are joined using the three needle bind off.

f. Increases and decreases are worked in pattern.

g. The ribbing stitch patterns are stretchy, and the fabric will stretch if aggressively wet blocked. Gentle wet blocking or steam blocking is recommended.
