Designed by Rachel Brockman
This sleek pullover is named for the slimming vertical lines of patterning that travel upward toward a folded turtleneck collar. Each piece of this sweater incorporates a bit of patterning along with a body of stockinette to keep things relatively simple, but with a bit of interest to keep your focus. Northbound is sure to become your next fall and winter wardrobe staple.
This saddle-shoulder sweater is worked flat in pieces and seamed. Turtleneck stitches are picked up and knit in the round. When binding off, use the Sloped Bind-Off technique.
