This sweater is specifically designed for inflexible yarns such as cotton, linen or silk (I made it with a yarn that is a blend of these three fibers). The wide cowl neck eliminates problems with pulling a closer-fitting neckband over the head, and the twisted ribbing adds flexibility to the ribbing borders.
The sweater is worked completely in the round, so there are no seams (just a small join at the underarms).
