Modesto

Sandi Prosser gave a fashion-forward European look to her Modesto design, which is knit in two coordinating shades of Pasea (solid and self-striping) from Plymouth Yarn Co. The front and back of the pullover are alike and feature a panel of Garter ribbing that slants into the neckline to form a funnel collar. For a more subtle effect, use just the solid-color yarn.

SIZES: Pullover is sized to fit Men’s Small (Medium, Large, X-Large).
