A sleek henley with a split hem makes a beautiful top layer for fall. Crosby is worked in pieces from a ribbed tubular hem, with the back longer than the front. The torso is shaped gently at the waist and the stockinette sleeves are set in for a tailored fit. The pullover is embellished front and back with twisted diamond motifs and densely worked cables, all of which can be worked either from charts or from written descriptions. The ribbed collar is picked up after the sweater pieces are seamed together, and last of all the short ribbed button bands are picked up from the fronts and collar edges.
Crosby is knit with Shelter and designed for a few inches of ease to layer over button-down shirts or dresses for a handsome, lengthening effect.
