Two strands make this yarn interesting one strand is white cotton, the other charcoal wool. Worked to a chunky gauge in a wide, broken rib, the yarn is springy and makes a stretchy fabric. The sweater is simple: worked in pieces with drop shoulders and a ribbed yoke aided by a few short-rows to make a raised boatneck.

Finished Size 40 (43½, 46½, 49½, 52½, 56)” bust circumference. Pullover shown measures 40″, modeled with 6″ of positive ease.

Yarn Imperial Yarn Anna (70% wool, 30% cotton; 140 yd [128 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): #46 quail, 6 (7, 8, 8, 9, 9) skeins.

Needles Sizes 7 (4.5 mm) and 8 (5 mm): straight and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
