Big Easy

Bylsma says, "Here is a man's sweater with just enough pattern to make it interesting to knit yet still plain enough to appeal to a man. The extra-wide vertical ribbing and sideways ribbing are intentionally asymmetric." Bylsma writ simple. Her designs are riveting, but often present a bit of a challenge. Not so this handsome devil-- though the change in stitch pattern suggests a saddle shoulder, it's really a pure drop. Wittily, one sleeve is done in the vertical rib and another in the horizontal-- though you can make both the same if you prefer.
