The model garment shown for this maddy laine men's pullover was knit in four colors but there is enough texture to go around to make it stand out in just one color.
K1, p1 rib starts off the lower edges, giving way to a slip stitch rib, followed by a well-placed raised border that introduces the mock cable stitch to the finish line at the shoulders. The sleeves knit in plain stocking (stockinette) stitch create a nice contrast to the rib texture. The sleeves are drop and there is a three-button closing at the crew neck.
Choose a yarn that gives great definition and let the texture shine on this one. In cotton or wool, it should surely please either the lucky man you have chosen to knit for, or the clever man who has chosen to knit for himself.
The knitting pattern, written in both US and metric measurements, includes a schematic drawing.
