FC73 Rib & Welt Pullover

It's extraordinarily difficult to design (or wear) something in a super chunky yarn that doesn't make you look super chunky, too, but here Melanson pulls it off with aplomb. Her combinations of the strong vertical ribbing with the knit/purl chevron on front and back are, incredibly, very slimming. Set-in sleeves just continue the tailored-looking lines (though there's no waist shaping). The neckline is almost self-finishing, but the fit is improved by picking up around its perimeter, decreasing somewhat in one round, then immediately casting off. Very fast to knit and extremely good-looking.
