Stella, by Oregon-based designer Jennifer Parroccini, presents a stunning mock cable pullover featuring a clever cross stitch pattern running up the front and around the back hem. This simple stitch pattern is quick to memorize, resulting in a beautiful pullover to pair with jeans, skirt, or over a dress this fall. This pullover is made from the bottom up in pieces and seamed. The neckline is picked up after seaming and worked in the round.
