Middagh by Emily Greene is the ultimate sweater-weather pullover, featuring strikingly modern cables at the sleeve, allover texture on the body, and a snuggly cowl neck. This drop shoulder pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, starting with an optional tubular cast on. The sleeve cables flow seamlessly out of 2x2 rib and the cowl neck is picked up and knit in the round after seaming.
